SPECIES Necromys lenguarum

Author:Thomas, 1898.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 7, 2: 271.
Common Name:Paraguayan Akodont
Type Locality:Paraguay, Presidente Hayes Dept., Chaco Boreal, Waikthlatingwaialwa.
Distribution:Chacoan formations of E Bolivia, W Paraguay, and possibly N Argentina (see Galliari et al., 1996).
Comments:Taxonomic status unresolved—demoted to subspecies under Akodon obscurus (Cabrera, 1961) or placed in full synonymy with Bolomys l. lasiurus (Macêdo and Mares, 1987), or generally if equivocally recognized as a species (Anderson, 1997; Anderson and Olds, 1989; Galliari and Pardiñas, 2000; Reig, 1987). Anderson (1997) maintained tapiropoanus, type locality in Mato Grosso, W Brazil, as a subspecies for Bolivian populations. Also see remarks under N. lasiurus.
