1. Another Thomasomys described: T. antoniobracki from N Peru (4.89429S 79.36761W). The link for downloading the PDF.
2. Bullimus carletoni described from S Luzon.
3. Three new species of Neacomys described from Amazonia: N. aletheia (split from N. minutus) lives between Ucayali and Jurua; N. elieceri (sister to N. vossi) between Madeira and Tapajos, and N. jau (sister to N. guyanae) between Japura & Rio Negro (which means it’s the one around Manaus).
4. Microcavia sorojchi described from NW Argentina (I have the PDF if anybody has trouble viewing it).
5. Jird Meriones dahli lumped into M. meridianus. Sad for me as I seriously risked getting shot while looking for it on Armenian-Turkish border 30 years ago.
6. Llanos population of Eptesicus diminutus split as E. orinocensis. If I am not mistaken, this is the species that roosts inside the walls at Hato Masaguaral in Venezuela (a great mammalwatching place, BTW).
7. Turns out there was a 2019 paper that lumped Rhinolophus kahuzi into R. ruwenzori, R. gorongosae and R. rhodesiae into R. simulator, R. cohenae, R. smithersi and R. mabuensis – into R. hildebrandti.
