Author:F. Petter and Genest, 1970.
Citation:Mammalia, 34: 454.
Common Name:Oubangui Mouse
Type Locality:Central African Republic, La Maboke, Ippy, Bangassou (F. Petter, 1981b, provided coordinates).
Distribution:Recorded only from Central African Republic (savanna north of Oubangui River); see Jotterand (1972:332).

Comments:Subgenus Nannomys. Sympatric with M. setulosus and M. minutoides (F. Petter and Genest, 1970), but a phylogenetic member of the M. sorella group, according to F. Petter (1981b), who also noted that its morphology, except for a dental trait, is similar to that of M. neavei (see that account). Chromosomal information, in context of understanding chromosomal evolution among species of African Mus, documented by Jotterand (1972) and Jotterand-Bellomo (1984, 1986).
