Report from the literature, not the field, is all that is in this post. (Sorry.) This is Charles Hood and checking an online mammal journal tonight turned up a range map for two endemic k-rats from central Mexico. One of them has been reported by Venkat and Jon Hall (via two different trip reports), D. phillopsii. The other, D. ornatus, may be new to this site? Forgive me if not; I am not as attentive (and retentive) as Venkat et alia. Authors of article are credited in the attached pdf and this document is provided for educational discussion. If you go to these sites and find something good, be sure to credit the authors in your social media posts and such like. If I did this correctly, the link to the map follows this sentence. k-rat-map
