 Comments
       
  Comment: Comments: Carleton and Musser (1984) diagnosed the subfamily using morphological traits and reviewed general characters, major fossil groups, and past association with New World sigmodontines. Living hamsters form a monophyletic group bounded by unambiguously derived morphological traits. Their cladistic integrity is reinforced by phylogenetic analysis of nuclear gene sequences (Michaux and Catzeflis, 2000; Michaux et al., 2001b), which associate hamsters as a monophyletic clade within a major lineag...
