[Mammalogy • 2013] Neusticomys monticolus (Anthony, 1921) (Mammalia, Rodentia, Cricetidae): Noteworthy records of the Montane Fish-Eating Rat in Colombia



Abstract
We document the presence of the Montane Fish-eating Rat, Neusticomys monticolus, in two páramo ecosystems of the Colombian Andes, in the departments of Valle del Cauca and Cauca at 3558 and 3300 m respectively. For small mammals, páramo ecosystems are underexplored zones in a biogeographic context.
