The San Lorenzo mouse (Peromyscus interparietalis) is a species of rodent in the family Cricetidae.[2] It is endemic to Mexico, where it is found only from the islands of San Lorenzo Norte, San Lorenzo Sur, and Salsipuedes off the east coast of Baja California. The species is threatened by predation by feral and domestic cats, particularly on San Lorenzo Sur.[1]
