Author:Goldman, 1905.
Citation:Proc. Biol. Soc. Wash., 18: 32.
Common Name:Stephen’s Woodrat
Type Locality:USA, Arizona, Mohave Co., Hualapai Mtns, 6300 ft (1920 m).
Distribution:Extreme SC Utah, N Arizona, and NW New Mexico, USA.
Status:IUCN – Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Subgenus Neotoma, lepida species group (sensu Edwards and Bradley, 2002b). Morphological separation from N. lepida and geographic variation reviewed by Hoffmeister and de la Torre (1960). Sister taxon to N. mexicana sensu lato based on phallic morphology (Hooper, 1960) and restriction-site analysis of mitochondrial DNA (Planz et al., 1996), but associated with the lepida complex based on cytochrome b sequence data (Edwards and Bradley, 2002b). See Jones and Hildreth (1989, Mammalian Species, 328).
