  Comment: Comments: Akodontini. Studies of electromorphic and gene-sequence variation decisively support the monophyly of Oxymycterus (minus iheringi, see Brucepattersonius) and its tribal placement as an akodontine (D'Elía, 2003; D'Elía et al., 2003; Hinojosa et al., 1987; Hoffmann et al., 2002; Patton et al., 1989; Smith and Patton, 1993, 1999); according to cytochrome b data, a sister group to the Necromys-Thaptomys-Akodon clade (Smith and Patton, 1999) or to Juscelinomys (D'Elía, 2003; D'Elía et al., 2003)...
