Historical Examples of taxa
A considerable amount of variation in this parameter was found in all of the taxa (Table 5).
Calls of all five taxa were compared in several characteristics, of which three are deemed most significant systematically.
Three are monotypic and the fourth has three subspecies, making a total of six taxa.
Each of these taxa is retained as a subgenus of a single genus, Orthogeomys.
Thus, due to Cochran and Goin's confusion of two taxa, their comparisons of certain specimens with types has little meaning.
