Range Description

Marmosa mexicana is widely distributed across tropical and subtropical forests and shrubby habitats below 1,600 m elevation from Mexico to Panama. It is also known to occur on two Caribbean islands: Isla de Roatn (Honduras) and Isla del Maz Grande (Nicaragua) (Rossi et al. 2010). Recent molecular evidence has suggested that M. mexicana could represent an entity formed by at least two species, which might be recognized after future studies. This information allows revision of the geographical distribution of M. mexicana (see Gutirrez et al. 2010).
