PARDINAS, Ulyses F. J; SIMOES LIBARDI, Gustavo  and  GALLIARI, Carlos A. Type localities of cricetids in unknown lands: Jesematathla and Waikthlatingmayalwa in the Paraguayan Chaco. Mastozool. neotrop. [online]. 2018, vol.25, n.2, pp.491-498. ISSN 0327-9383.

Jesematathla and Waikthlatingmayalwa are two type localities of cricetid rodents from the Paraguayan Chaco. The holotypes of Akodon toba and Oryzomys wavrini were collected in the former; whereas, Akodon lenguarum and Phyllotis chacoënsis were obtained in the latter. The exact geographic location of both localities is controversial, and the goal of this note is to clarify the issue. We show that both localities are located in the Humid Chaco. Jesematathla corresponds today to the Estancia Yesamathasa. Waikthlatingmayalwa disappeared as a toponym, replaced by Misión Central and should be retained solely for historical purposes. The taxonomic implications of these findings are briefly discussed.
