More taxonomy news

Three more new species from the Neotropics (open access in the latest issue of J. Mamm.):
1. Oecomys matogrosensis split from O. catherinae. The new species occurs in Mato Grosso down to the N edges of the Pantanal; if you’ve trapped rodents at Alta Floresta you should’ve seen it.
2. Rhagomys septentrionalis accidentally discovered in Ecuador.
3. Vampyressa voragine described from Eastern Andes of Colombia.
