SPECIES Arborimus longicaudus

Author:True, 1890.
Citation:Proc. U. S. Natl. Mus., 13: 303.
Common Name:Red Tree Vole
Type Locality:USA, Oregon, Coos Co., Marshfield.
Distribution:Coastal area and Western Cascade Mtns, W Oregon (Verts and Carraway, 1998:Fig. 11-106), USA.
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Although Howell (1926) recognized silvicola as a nominal species, subsequent research has favored its synonymy under A. longicaudus (Johnson, 1968), where it has been maintained as a subspecies (Hall, 1981; Johnson and George, 1991). Formerly included populations in California assigned to the new species A. pomo (see next account). See Hayes (1996, Mammalian Species, 532).
