GENUS Haeromys

Author:Thomas, 1911.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 8, 7: 207.
Type Species:Mus margarettae Thomas, 1893.
Comments:MicromysDivision. A Sundaic and Sulawesian endemic. Cranial, dental, and spermatozoal morphology suggested a distant phylogenetic link to Chiropodomys (Breed and Musser, 1991; Musser and Newcomb, 1983). This alliance was indicated by Thomas (1893:346) in describing margarettae: "Skull with a very peculiar and noteworthy resemblance to that of Chiropodomys agreeing with that of Ch. gliroides so closely that it is not until a close examination is made that the differences become apparent." Chromosomal data is ambiguous in assessing Haeromysís closest relatives (Musser, 1990). A new species from C Sulawesi will be described within the context of a revision of Haeromys being prepared by Musser (ms).
