  Comment: Álvarez-Castañeda & Rios (2011) and Álvarez-Castañeda et al. (2012) indicate that several subspecies from Chaetodipus arenarios (e.g., C. a. sublucidus (Nelson and Goldman, 1929) and C. a. ammophilus (Osgood, 1929)) belong in C. dalquesti (Roth, 1976). However, this would require changing the species name according to priority, such that the three (or more) would instead be subspecies of C. ammophilus (Osgood, 1907), or of whatever the senior available name is, due to nomenclatural rules
