|Scientific Name:||Abrothrix sanborni|
|Species Authority:||(Osgood, 1943)|
Akodon sanborni Osgood, 1943
|Taxonomic Notes:||Formerly in Muridae family. May be conspecific with A. longipilis, but has not yet been formally documented (Pearson 1995, Pine et al. 1979, Patterson, et al. 1989). It has been reported as hybridizing with A. longipilis so the validity of the species should be reviewed (G. D'elia pers. comm.)|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Near Threatened ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||Patterson, B. & D'Elia, G.|
|Reviewer(s):||Amori, G. (Small Nonvolant Mammal Red List Authority) & Schipper, J. (Global Mammal Assessment Team)|
Listed as Near Threatened because the known extent of occurrence of this species is probably not much greater than 20,000 km², and populations are in decline because of loss of habitat due to increasing timber exploitation. Almost qualifies as threatened under criterion B1.
|Previously published Red List assessments:||
|Range Description:||This species occurs in southern Chile and the range is thought to extend into adjacent Argentina (Musser and Carleton 2005). The species has been noted at Parque Nacional Nahuel Huapí in Argentina but never confirmed (Cabrera 1961; Galliari et al. 1996).|
|Upper elevation limit (metres):||800|

|Population:||There is information on decreasing of collected specimens (Murua et al. 2003). There is evidence of decreasing of population in some localities (G. D'elia pers. comm.).|
|Current Population Trend:||Decreasing|
|Habitat and Ecology:||Coastal rainforest (Valdivian forest) until around 800 m. The species is not found on any inshore islands (B. Patterson pers. comm.)|
|Major Threat(s):||Deforestation of the coastal forest for timber activities.|
