SPECIES Akodon (Akodon) iniscatus

Author:Thomas, 1919.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 9, 3: 205.
Common Name:Patagonian Akodont
Type Locality:Argentina, Chubut Prov., Valle del Lago Blanco, Koslowsky region, 100 m.
Distribution:WC to EC Argentina (Buenos Aires Prov., see Pardiñas and Galliari, 1999), as far south as Santa Cruz Prov.
Status:IUCN – Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Subgenus Akodon. The form nucus has been variously listed as a species (Galliari et al., 1996; Hershkovitz, 1990c; Reig, 1987), but Barros et al. (1990) and Pearson (1995) retained it as a subspecies pending critical revision of this complex. Karyotype (2n = 33-34) reported by Barros et al. (1990), who noted its extensive banding homologies with samples of A. puer (here = A. lutescens).
