 Comments
       
  Comment: Status: U.S. ESA - Endangered as S. b. riparius; IUCN - Lower Risk (lc)  
    Comments: Subgenus Microlagus (Lyon, 1904). Placed in genus Microlagus together with idahoensis by Gureev (1964:171). This is the only species of Sylvilagus known to have retained the putative ancestral karyotype (2n=48) shared by all known Lepus, and by Romerolagus (Robinson et al., 1981, 1984). See also S. mansuetus.Reviewed by Chapman (1974, Mammalian Species, 34)
