Comments:A specimen of Napaeozapus was collected in Park County, Indiana (Lyon, 1942), though subsequent trapping failed to yield further examples (Mumford, 1969). The identity of the specimen was verified by Klingener (1965:645) and Wrigley (1972:42). Systematic revision and biology provided by Wrigley (1972). Myology, in context of adaptive and phylogenetic significance, studied by Klingener (1964). Diagnosis, range map, and records provided by Hall (1981). Population in E Kentucky discussed by Meade (1992). Reviewed by Whitaker and Wrigley (1972, Mammalian Species, 14), Whitaker and Hamilton (1998), and Whitaker (1999a).
