SPECIES Akodon (Akodon) dolores

Author:Thomas, 1916.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 8, 18: 324.
Common Name:Córdoba Akodont
Type Locality:Argentina, Córdoba Prov., near Villa Dolores, Yacanto, 900 m.
Distribution:C Argentina (Catamarca, Córdoba, and Santiago del Estero).
Status:IUCN – Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Subgenus Akodon, A. varius species group (Myers, 1989). Considered closely related to A. molinae (Bianchi et al., 1979; Myers, 1989; Wittouck et al., 1995), if not conspecific with it (Hershkovitz, 1990c), but karyological differences (2n = 34-40 in A. dolores versus 42-44 in A. molinae) and generally non-overlapping distributions suggest distinctive species, as clarified by Tiranti (1998b).
