Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
D. Hoffmeister 1959A species of Peromyscus with a small anteroconid, distinctive cuspid on posterolophid, and reentrant angle posterior to entoconid not directed as much anteriorly at apex as in most Peromyscus. Diagnostically different from other species of Peromyscus from the Upper Miocene in that protoconid arm or mesolophid extends transversely to cingulum; much smaller size.
