dc.description.abstract "A new specimen of a giant arboreally adapted abrocomid rodent from the northern Vilcabamba Mountains of Cusco, Peru, is here described as a member of a new genus and species. The arboreal nature of the external morphology of the holotype differs strikingly from that of all other know Abrocomidae, which are terrestrial. A species known only from remains found in Inca tombs, Abrocoma oblativa Eaton, 1916, is placed in the new genus"--P. [1]. en_US
