Reviewer: Sasata (talk) 16:57, 3 July 2010 (UTC) I'm claiming this review; comments to follow sometime this weekend. Sasata (talk) 16:57, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks; looking forward to the review. Ucucha 17:20, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Ok, looks very good! Here's a few minor comments:

  • "Until 2006, its members were included in the genus Oryzomys, but they are not closely related to the type species of that genus," Reading this I wondered what happened in 2006 to make them change their minds. I'd insert "...but phylogenetic analysis showed they are not closely ..."
    • Good point, changed.
  • "have been recorded on both species. Both species are "Slightly awkward repetition of words where the sentences meet. Also, "Various external parasites have been recorded on both species." sound slightly.... robotic. How about something along the lines of "Both species are host to several species of external parasites."
    • Reworded this a little.
  • "named as Oryzomys talamancae by Joel Asaph Allen in 1891." Cite/link to protolog? And later for Allen 1901 as well?
    • Done. Ucucha 06:38, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
  • "but it has again been recognized as a separate species since 1983." Says what paper?
    • Gardner (1983); the cited source (Musser and Carleton, 2005, p. 1155) also says that it was Gardner who reinstated it. Ucucha 06:16, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
  • link tribe; snout (I had to look it up; I thought it was a pig's nose!)
    • Done.

Nice work, everything is in order. I'm promoting the article now. Sasata (talk) 15:42, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
