Perognathus lavescens perniger, Iowa, Range Extension

Abstract

The known range for the plains pocket mouse, Perognathus flavescens perniger Osgood has been extended 60 miles (96 km) southeast of the easternmost known locality for this arid grassland species. The discovery of this species in the relict sand dune habitat of Muscatine County, Iowa indicates that other eastern populations may be found in similar relict areas in southeastern Iowa and western Illinois.
