The recently described taxon Drymoreomys albimaculatus is endemic to the Brazilian Atlantic Forest and its biology and genetics are still poorly known. Nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequences from the two karyotyped individuals verify the taxonomic identity as the recently described Drymoreomys albimaculatus and confirm the relationship of the species with other Oryzomyini. Additionally, external morphological information is provided. The Atlantic Forest harbors a high diversity of mammals, 20 percent of which are rodents of the subfamily Sigmodontinae Ribeiro et al. However, the fauna of this biome is still barely known, such that discovery of new species is still common De Vivo et al.

Drymoreomys is a rodent genus in the tribe Oryzomyini that lives in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil. The single species, D. It lives in the humid forest on the eastern slopes of the Serra do Mar and perhaps reproduces year-round. Although its range is relatively large and includes some protected areas , it is patchy and threatened, and the discoverers recommend that the animal be considered " Near Threatened " on the IUCN Red List.
