|Scientific Name:||Nephelomys keaysi|
|Species Authority:||(J.A. Allen, 1900)|
Oryzomys keaysi J.A. Allen, 1900
|Taxonomic Notes:||Oryzomys is a generic synonym (Weksler et al. 2006).|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Contributor(s):||Weksler, M. & Vargas, J.|
This species is listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
|Range Description:||This species occurs in the eastern Andes from southeastern Peru to central Bolivia. It occurs between 1,000 to 2,600 m, with most of the records from 1,200 to 1,500 m (Percequillo in prep.).|
