  Comment: The species originally included in Arctomys by Schreber (1780) are primarily now found in genus Marmota, although one (Arctomys citellus) is now assigned to genus Spermophilus. The type species of Arctomys Schreber 1780 is apparently Mus monax Linnaeus 1758, now known as Marmota monax (Linnaeus 1758), so the genus is synonymized accordingly under Marmota, not under Spermophilus. It is also apparently a senior homonym of Arctomys Ord 1815
