The general distribution of the family geomyidae in North America is limited only by suitable soils, although a particular species may be also be limited by climatic or other factors associated with altitude and latitude and by interspecies by: The family Heteromyidae contains six genera and 60 species (Nowak, ). The genus Dipodomys was recently confirmed as a monophyletic division and contains 21 species that live primarily in North America (Alexander and Riddle, ; Nowak, ). 2 Description. The description is adapted from Nowak (). Kangaroo rats are highly modified for travel by jumping.   Geomyidae—Pocket Gophers. the three genera can easily be told from one another. Discriminating between species within a genus may be difficult, however (see generic accounts). Not unexpectedly for fossorial animals, a number of extinct species is known. identification to the family "Geomyidae" is useless for interpretation. Some sources also list a genus Hypogeomys, with one species, but this genus name is normally used for the Malagasy giant rat, which belongs to the family Nesomyidae. In popular culture [ edit ] Minnesota is nicknamed the "Gopher State", and the University of Minnesota 's athletics teams are collectively known as the Golden Gophers, led by.

Geomys bursarius (Shaw, ) is a geomyid commonly called the plains pocket gopher. A stocky rodent morphologically adapted for a fossorial life, it is 1 of 11 species in the genus Geomys. It occurs in southern Manitoba, Canada, and throughout the central United States southward to Texas. It prefers open grasslands and agricultural fields and is considered an economic pest. The subspecies G. Geomyidae Included genera (for Mammal Species of the World (), 7 July ): Cratogeomys, Geomys, Orthogeomys, Pappogeomys, Thomomys, Zygogeomys. Mark S.

Williams (b) reviewed phallic morphology; Hafner (), Honeycutt and Williams (), and Hafner et al. (b) reported on phylogenetic relationships based on biochemical characters; and Wahlert () provided a classification of the superfamily Geomyoidea, including Geomyidae. Russell (a) and Hall () provided keys to Recent genera. Korth () summarized the fossil record .
