SPECIES Oryzomys devius

Author:Bangs, 1902.
Citation:Bull. Mus. Comp. Zool., 39: 34.
Common Name:Talamancan Oryzomys
Type Locality:Panamá, Chiriqui Prov., Volcán de Chiriqui, Boquete, 5000 ft (1524 m).
Distribution:Highlands of Costa Rica and westernmost Panamá.
Status:IUCN – Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Maintained as a species until relegated to synonymy under O. albigularis by Handley (1966), emulating the treatment of South American albigularis-like forms by Cabrera (1961). Gardner (1983a), however, continued to rank devius as a species; its status must be evaluated within a revisionary context of the entire albigularis complex.
