Mammalogists on Taxacom,
I'm a little prejudiced when it comes to resources on mammals, sinc=
was co-editor of the first edition of Mammals Species of the World (1982).
A second edition was published in 1993, and it is now available onl=
at the Smithsonian Institution site. Just go to a search engine and type=
Mammal Species of the World, and the Smithsonian site should appear near =
top of the list.
P.S. The genus Rhipidomys in particular is not very well known, and the=20
exact number of species is still very debatable (I personally doubt that =
the 14 species listed are good species, but I've always been more of a=20
lumper than a splitter).
