Abstract

We collected two specimens of Reithrodontomys megalotis on Magdalena Island on the Pacific Ocean side of Baja California Sur. They represent the first insular record of the species in Mexico. These records extend the distribution range of the species about 450 km south of the southernmost record of R. megalotis in Baja California. In addition, three previously unpublished localities in mainland Baja California are reported.
