Heteromyinae
Heteromyinae
is a subfamily of rodents in the family Heteromyidae,[2] commonly known as spiny pocket mice. It contains a single extant genus, Heteromys, as well as the extinct genera Diprionomys and Metaliomys.[1] Heteromys
Heteromys
was recently enlarged by inclusion of the members of formerly recognized heteromyine genus Liomys, which was found to be paraphyletic.[3] Taxonomy[edit] Heteromyinae
Heteromyinae
is the sister group of Perognathinae; the two are estimated to have split about 22-23 million years (Ma) ago. The most recent common ancestor of extant heteromyines is thought to have lived 12-15 Ma ago; the basal species in the subfamily is H. salvini.[3] References[edit]
