SPECIES Graomys domorum

Author:Thomas, 1902.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 7, 9: 132.
Common Name:Pale Pericote
Type Locality:Bolivia, Cochabamba Dept., Tapacari, 3000 m.
Distribution:E slopes of Andes in SC Bolivia (600-3700 m) and NW Argentina.
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Maintained as species by Cabrera (1961), but ranked as a subspecies of griseoflavus by Hershkovitz (1962). Chromosomal divergence reported by Pearson and Patton (1976), who reinstated domorum as a species (also see Olds et al., 1987). Reig (1978) followed Cabrera (1961) in allocating taterona to G. domorum, and Anderson (1997) maintained the latter as a definable subspecies.
