dc.description.abstract "Four groups of murid rodents that were once included in Rattus are taken out of that genus: the Rattus niviventer-group from Southeast Asia and the Sunda Shelf, which is placed in the genus Niviventer; the Rattus sabanus-group, which comprises the genus Leopoldamys, also occurring in Southeast Asia, the Sunda Shelf, and the Mentawai Islands; Rattus ohiensis from Ceylon, which is placed in Srilankamys, new genus; and the Rattus beccarii-group of Sulawesi for which the new gneus, Margaretamys, is proposed not only for beccarii but also for the new species M. elegans and M. parvus. Anonymomys mindorensis, new genus and species, is proposed for an arboreal rat from Mindoro in the Philippines. The genera are diagnosed, described, compared with others, and their contents discussed. Their possible relationships to Lenothrix, Dacnomys, Chiromyscus, and Maxomys, groups that were either once considered to be part of Rattus or at least Rattus-like, are discussed in the context of their affinities relative to Rattus"--P. 229. en_US

This item appears in the following Collection(s)

  • Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History
    The Bulletin, published continuously since 1881, consists of longer monographic volumes in the field of natural sciences relating to zoology, paleontology, and geology. Current numbers are published at irregular intervals. The Bulletin was originally a place to publish short papers, while longer works appeared in the Memoirs. However, in the 1920s, the Memoirs ceased and the Bulletin series began publishing longer papers. A new series, the Novitates , published short papers describing new forms.
