 Comments
       
  Comment: Comments: Reithrodontomyini. While Vorontsov (1959) arranged Onychomys as sole member of its own tribe, apart from Reithrodontomyini, a robust body of data now supports its close phyletic affinity with Peromyscus and related genera (Allard and Honeycutt, 1991; Carleton, 1980; Hooper and Musser, 1964b; Stangl and Baker, 1984b; Sullivan et al., 1995), in particular Osgoodomys (Engel et al., 1998), and recommends the synonymy of these two family-group taxa (Reithrodontomyini having line priority)
