This chapter comments on the location of eight Argentinian type localities for 22 sigmodontine taxa (Cricetidae: Sigmodontine). It notes that this study is based on information gathered from original publications, labels of type specimens, field catalogs and notes housed in museums, and historical records and maps. The chapter specifies that these localities (arranged in order of increasing latitude) are: Higuerilla (Province of Jujuy), Caraguatay and río Paranay (Province of Misiones), río de Oro (Province of Chaco), Otro Cerro (Province of Catamarca), “Norte de Entre Ríos,” Isla Ella (Province of Buenos Aires), Neuquén, río Limay (Province of Neuquén), and Valle del Lago Blanco or Valle/Región Koslowsky (Province of Chubut). It clarifies the geographic locations, provides their current names, and/or restricts these type localities. The chapter also poses comments on the taxonomic significance of these actions.

Keywords:   Argentinian type localities, sigmodontine taxa, geographic location, taxonomic significance
