The Monroe County specimen is dolomitic limestone showing marks in the size range of Sciurus niger (fox squirrel), Marmota monax (woodchuck), mouse-sized species, and possibly the lagomorph Sylvilagus
floridanus (eastern cottontail).
For example, we did not detect the eastern spotted skunk Spilogale putorius, long-tailed weasel Mustela frenata, blacktailed prairie dog Cynomys ludovicianus, or swamp rabbit Sylvilagus
SERC, Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, Edgewater, MD; also sampled domestic cat (1 WNV-negative juvenile), groundhog, Marmota monax (1 WNV-negative adult, 1 WNV-positive adult), eastern cottontail rabbit, Sylvilagus
floridanus (1 WNV-negative adult).
The only rabbit occurring at the depot is the eastern cottontail, Sylvilagus
The common fossil cottontail in the Guadalupe Mountains region is recognized as Sylvilagus
nuttallii (mountain cottontail).
Some of the mammals with relatively little ecological restriction, at least within an area as small and as varied as the Grand Calumet River basin, are the eastern cottontail, Sylvilagus
floridana; raccoon, Procyon lotor; long-tailed weasel, Mustela frenata; striped skunk, Mephitis mephitis; and white-tailed deer, Odocoileus virginiana.
This paper presents noteworthy records of small mammals from a collecting trip to the Llanos region in central Venezuela and includes range extensions for six taxa (Pteronotus gymnonotus, Lonchorhina orinocensis, Lonchophylla thomasi, Mus musculus, Rhipidomys leucodactylus and Sylvilagus
The Davis Mountains cottontail, Sylvilagus
robustus, is an endemic species of the Trans-Pecos region of Texas, occurring in pinyon-oak-juniper (Pinus-Quercus-Juniperus) woodlands of the Guadalupe, Davis, Chinati, and Chisos Mountains at elevations of 1,432-2,438 m (Schmidly, 1977).
In North America, members of the family Leporidae, such as Sylvilagus
nuttalli); seven species were known for the county by <3 specimens (Dasypus novemcinctus, Sylvilagus
floridanus, Cryptotis parva, Scalopus aquaticus, Sciurus niger, Microtus pinetorum, Peromyscus gossypinus); and four species had not been collected in the county in ca.
