GENUS Leimacomys

Author:Matschie, 1893.
Citation:Sitzb. Ges. Naturf. Fr. Berlin: 107.
Type Species:Leimacomys bŁttneri Matschie, 1893.
Comments:Rosevear (1969) provided a particularly good summary of past taxonomic allocations of Leimacomys and the nature of the types, which consist of an imperfect skin and a specimen preserved in fluid; only one cranium and mandible have been located, but the different wear on upper and lower molars indicates the two elements to be mismatched.
