 Geographic Information
  Geographic Division:    



  Comment: Comments: Thomasomyini. A speciose and taxonomically complex genus whose nomenclatural history is intertwined with Aepeomys, Delomys, and Wilfredomys, taxa that have been used as subgenera (e.g., Ellerman, 1941; Cabrera, 1961) or as genera (see their accounts). Comparative anatomical studies involving some Thomasomys include Carleton (1973), Hooper and Musser (1964a), and Voss and Linzey (1981); chromosomal numbers of several species published by Gardner and Patton (1976), Gómez-Laverde et al. (1997)...
