Abstract

Four sympatric species of Hylomyscus (H. aeta, H. alIeni, H. parvus, and H. stella) were examined morphometrically and karyotypically. Age variation was assessed in all species. Sexual dimorphism was found to be a major source of variation in only one species, H. aeta. Karyotypes are illustrated for the first time for three species. H. aeta, H. alIeni, and H. parvus. Taxonomic problems within the genus, differences among the species, diagnostic characters, and the relationships of these species to other African Hylomyscus are discussed.
