SPECIES Akodon (Akodon) reigi

Author:González, Langguth, and Oliveira, 1998.
Citation:Comun. Zool. Mus. Hist. Nat. Montevideo, 12(191): 2.
Common Name:Reig’s Akodont
Type Locality:Uruguay, Lavalleja Dept., Paso Averias; 33º60′S, 54º40′W.
Distribution:Gallery forests of E Uruguay and extreme S Brazil (Rio Grande do Sul).
Comments:Subgenus Akodon, A. cursor species group sensu Rieger et al. (1995). Principally contrasted to A. cursor and A. serrensis; see remarks by González et al. (1998) on karyotype (2n = 44) and misattributed reports of this new species as A. serrensis. Status and distributional limits with regard to A. mystax and especially A. paranaensis deserve careful review (see those accounts and discussion by Pardiñas et al., 2003a).
