  Comment: Wilson and Reeder (2005) incorrectly spell the epithet of Mus homoourus Hodgson, 1845 as 'homourus'  
    'the specific name domesticus Schwarz & Schwarz, 1943, as published in the trinomen Mus musculus domesticus, is to be given precedence over all names, with the exception of musculus Linnaeus, 1758, that are considered to be synonyms of it' (ICZN, 1990)
