  Comment: Status: IUCN - Lower Risk (lc) as Bolomys lasiurus  
    Comments: Revised as part of Zygodontomys (Hershkovitz, 1962); inclusion of lasiurus within Bolomys (or Akodon), not Zygodontomys, supported by karyological and morphological information (see Gardner and Patton, 1976; Maia and Langguth, 1981; Voss and Linzey, 1981). Geographic variation assessed, as Bolomys lasiurus, by Macêdo and Mares (1987), who retained only fuscinus and lasiurus as subspecies. The validity of listed synonyms very much needs confirmation: e.g., the taxon arviculoides is considere...  
    Wilson and Reeder (2005) cite the date of publication of Mus lasiurus (original combination of Necromys lasiurus) as 1840; however, the species description is inadequate in Mag. Nat. Hist. new ser. 4: 55 (1840) and a valid publication was not made until 1841 in K. Danske Vidensk. Selsk. Afhandl. 8: 50-52
