SPECIES Dipodillus (Dipodillus) zakariai

Author:Cockrum, Vaughn, and Vaughn`, 1976.
Citation:Mammalia, 40: 320.
Common Name:Kerkennah Islands Dipodil
Type Locality:N Africa, Tunisia, Kerkennah Isls, 0.5 km E Kellabine, about 42 km east of Sfax, Tunisia.
Distribution:Recorded only from the Kerkennah Isls, off the Tunisian coast opposite the coastal city of Sfax.
Comments:Subgenus Dipodillus. Lay (1983) included zakariai in D. simoni but provided no reasons for doing so. Pavlinov et al. (1990) recognized it as a species. Cockrum et al. (1976a) provided adequate morphological data to support the hypothesis that zakariai is an insular species related to mainland D. simoni.
