Smith P - Marmosa paraguayana - FAUNA Paraguay Handbook of the Mammals of Paraguay Number 30 2009 LONG-FURRED WOOLLY MOUSE OPOSSUM Marmosa paraguayana (Tate, 1931) FIGURE 1 - (FPMAM23PH) Adult, Estancia Nueva Gambach, Departamento Itapúa (Sylvia Qu June 2008). TAXONOMY: Class Mammalia; Subclass Theria; Infraclass Metatheria; Magnorder Ameridelphia; Order Didelphimorphia; Family Didelphidae; Subfamily Marmosinae, Tribe Marmosini (Myers et al 2006, Gardner 2007). The genus Marmosa was described by Gray (1821). Until recently this species was placed in the genus Micoureus Lesson, 1842, but multiple phylogenetic studies have found Micoureus to be embedded within Marmosa (Gruber et al 2007). Voss & Jansa (2009) opted to return Micoureus to Marmosa and treat it as a subgenus, noting that this arrangement may change again in the future. Gutiérrez et al (2010) found the subgenus to be monophyletic, but warned that the taxonomy of the group has not been revised for many years and that it likely contains currently unrecognised species that theoretically could change the result.
