SPECIES Oligoryzomys victus

Author:Thomas, 1898.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 7, 1: 178.
Common Name:St. Vincent Colilargo
Type Locality:Lesser Antilles, Saint Vincent.
Distribution:Known only from the type locality.
Status:IUCN Endangered.
Comments:Earlier classifications listed O. victus as an Oryzomys of uncertain affinity (Ellerman, 1941; Goldman, 1918), and Hall and Kelson (1959) erroneously placed it with their "tectus group" (= Oecomys). Thomas (1898a), and later Ray (1962), emphasized its alliance with species of Oligoryzomys. Known only by the holotype; presumably extinct (see Ray, 1962).
