Reviewer/s: McKnight, M. (Global Mammal Assessment Team) & Amori, G. (SmallNonvolant Mammal Red List Authority) Contributor/s:Justification: This species is listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population,tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, occurrence in protected areas, and because it does notappear to be under threat and is unlikely to be declining at nearly the rate required to qualify forlisting in a threatened category.

Population [top] Population: This species is generally common. Population Trend:  Stable Habitat and Ecology [top] HabitatandEcology: It is found in evergreen and semideciduous forest and tall second growth (Reid 1997).This mouse is nocturnal and strictly arboreal. Its short limbs and broad body give it awaddling gait on the ground, but may aid in balance on vertical vines and branches, whereit appears to be more agile. The diet includes figs, fruit of madders and borage ( Cordiadiversifolia ), seeds, and insects. Several individuals were seen catching small white mothsamong the rafters of a house in Costa Rica. Nests were found in tree hollows in Veracruz(Hall and Dalquest 1963, in Reid 1997). Entrances of 3 to 8 cm diameter were preferred,leading to larger hollows 15 to 32 cm wide (Reid 1997). This species is usually silent in thewild (Reid 1997). Litter size is 1 to 4 young, averaging 2, and reproduction may take placeyear-round (Reid 1997).
