Marmosops (Sciophanes) invictus

(Goldman, 1912)

TYPE MATERIAL AND TYPE LOCALITY: USNM 178708 View Materials , the holotype by original designation, consists of the skin and skull of an adult male collected at “Cana” (= Santa Cruz de Cana : 7.78° N, 77.70° W; 610 m), Darién province, Panama GoogleMaps .

SYNONYMS: None.

DISTRIBUTION: Specimens of Marmosops invictus examined by Díaz-Nieto and Voss (2016: fig. 20) were all from eastern and central Panama, where this species has been recorded from about 600 to 1500 m. Although Handley (1966) and Mangan and Adler (2000) reported M. invictus from western Panama (Bocas del Toro and Chiriquí), no voucher material from western Panama is known to exist.

REMARKS: For illustrations, an emended description, measurement data, morphological comparisons with closely related congeners, and comments about previously misidentified specimens, see Díaz-Nieto and Voss (2016), who assigned Marmosops invictus to the Fuscatus Group based on phylogenetic analyses of DNA sequence data previously reported by Díaz-Nieto et al. (2016b).
