SPECIES Marmosops neblina

Author:Gardner, 1990.
Citation:In K. H. Redford and J. F. Eisenberg, eds., Advances in Neotropical Mammalogy, The Sandhill Crane Press, Inc.: 414.
Common Name:Neblina Slender Opossum
Type Locality:Venezuela, Amazonas, "Camp VII (00°50'40"N, 65°58'10"W), 1800 m, Cerro de la Neblina."
Distribution:S Venezuela, E Ecuador, E Perú, and W Brazil (Patton et al., 2000).
Comments:Described as a subspecies of M. impavidus; reviewed by Mustrangi and Patton (1997) and Patton et al. (2000). The spelling neblinae Linares, 1998, is an incorrect subsequent spelling of neblina (Gardner). One of the several names grouped under M. impavidus may prove to be a senior synonym for neblina.
