SPECIES Peromyscus perfulvus

Author:Osgood, 1945.
Citation:J. Mammal., 26: 299.
Common Name:Tawny Deermouse
Type Locality:México, Michoacán, 10 km W Apatzingán, 1040 ft (317 m).
Distribution:Coastal lowlands of Jalisco and Colima, along Río Balsas to interior Michocán and northernmost Guerrero, México.
Status:IUCN – Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:P. melanophrys species group. Placed with P. melanophrys group by Hooper (1968), an association supported by electrophoretic data (Schmidly et al., 1985). The geographic range and ecological affinity of P. perfulvus and Osgoodomys banderanus are tightly congruent and suggest similar biogeographic histories.
