This chapter considers the position of the genus Bibimys relative other sigmodontine rodents. It analyzes mitochondrial DNA sequences and provides evidence against the inclusion of Bibimys within the Scapteromini. The chapter also questions the validity of the three species currently assigned to Bibimys and stresses the need for continued taxonomic, systematic, and phylogenetic analysis of Neotropical sigmodontine rodents.

Keywords:   Bibimys, sigmodontine rodents, mitochondrial DNA sequences, Scapteromini, phylogenetic analysis, systematic analysis, taxonomic analysis
