This chapter explores the generic-level systematics of the Echimyidae, one of the most diverse families of Neotropical rodents. It analyses the arboreal members of this family and proposes two new genera of echimyids, including the aptly named Pattonomys. The chapter suggests that this study reveals how much remains to be learned regarding the systematics of the mammals of South America.

Keywords:   Echimyidae, Neotropical rodents, generic-level systematic, echimyids, Pattonomys, morphological characters, mammals, South America
