Citation:Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 14: 43.
Common Name:Buff-bellied Rhipidomys
Type Locality:Perú, Puno Dept., valley of Río Inambari, Inca Mines (= Santo Domingo), 6000 ft (1830 m).
Distribution:Known only from the type locality and vicinity, SE Perú.
Status:IUCN – Lower Risk (nt).
Comments:R. leucodactylus section sensu Tribe (1996). Retained as a species until judged the same as R. l. leucodactylus by Cabrera (1961). J. A. Allen (1901b), however, pointedly contrasted his new species with Peruvian R. leucodactylus; Musser and Carleton (1993) and Tribe (1996) retained it as species. Geographic range and closest specific relative uncertain.
