The two groups of samples differ in morphological features, and the significance of this variation should be determined in a careful systematic revision of the genus. Berylmys bowersii, Chiropodomys gliroides, and Leopoldamys sabanus have roughly concordant geographic ranges and demonstrate similar patterns of geographic morphological variation (Musser and Newcomb, 1983; Musser et al., 1979).
