A revision of Philander (Marsupialia: Didelphidae). Part 2, phylogenetic relationships and morphological diagnosis of P. nigratus Thomas, 1923. (American Museum novitates, no. 3955)
American Museum of Natural History.
Newly available molecular sequences and morphological data suggest that Philander nigratus Thomas, 1923, is a valid species. Currently known from just eight specimens collected in the Peruvian departments of Junín and Ayacucho, P. nigratus does not appear to be closely related to either of the congeneric taxa with which it was previously synonymized.
