Euryoryzomys macconnelli, also known as MacConnell's rice rat [2] or MacConnell's oryzomys, [3] is a rodent species from South America. It is found in Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname and Venezuela, where it lives in lowland tropical rainforest. [1] It was formerly placed in the genus Oryzomys, as Oryzomys macconnelli, [3] but in 2006 it was reclassified as the type species of the new genus Euryoryzomys. [4]
