 Geographic Information
  Geographic Division: South America  



  Comment: Regarding authorship and spelling, Jourdan (1937:522) named "le Nélomys de Blainville (Nelomelys Blainvilii)," ending with one L and -ii, as seen at, although that work was widely overlooked in some works attributing the name to Cuvier. Cuvier (1837/1838:371) quoted from "Mémoire de M. Jourdan" in a footnote with that same spelling, as seen at Emmons et al. (2002) retain the original spelling, which is followed here
