 Comments
       
  Comment: Status: IUCN - Lower Risk (lc)  
    Comments: Geographic variation evaluated by Voss (1991a), who recognized cherriei and microtinus, along with the nominate form, as subspecies. Formerly included punctulatus, which Voss (1991b) reidentified as a member of Bolomys (= Necromys). Karyotypic variation of Brazilian populations reported by Mattevi et al. (2002), who questioned whether brevicauda as currently arranged is a composite; Bonvicino et al. (2003d) reached the same conclusion based on evaluation of cranial traits and karyotypes
