A couple taxonomy news:
1. Peromyscus mice are usually very easy to ID even in areas with many species present, so I’m sure nobody will be confused by yet another species being described from central Mexico. I haven’t read the paper yet; will wait until it’s on sci-hub… sorry, I mean, until I have money to buy access.
2. There is a new theory on the identity of small wolves/jackals from Afar region. Look for them in Awash NP (see my 2009 trip report).
