dc.description.abstract "The cricetine genus Daptomys is a South American amphibious mouse known by four specimens, three from eastern and southern Venezuela and one from eastern Perú. The three from Venezuela are examples of D. venezuelae, a species described by Anthony in 1929. The specimen from Perú represents a new species which we name and describe. We also report on morphological variation among the three examples of D. venezuelae, compare them with the Peruvian specimen, and provide information about habitat"--P. [1]. en_US
