The smooth-toothed pocket gophers, genus Thomomys, are so called because they are among the only pocket gophers without grooves on their incisors.

They are also called the western pocket gophers because they are distributed in western North America. They are considered distinct enough from other pocket gophers to be recognized as a separate subfamily or : Mammalia.

Abstract. Pocket gophers of the genus Orthogeomys show unusually high morphological and ecological diversity compared to other genera in the family Geomyidae. Whereas this diverse group once was divided into 3 genera (Merriam ), a revision by Russell () recognized only Orthogeomys, with Merriam’s original genera relegated to subgeneric status as Heterogeomys, Cited by: 1.

Pocket gopher, (family Geomyidae), any of 38 species of predominantly North and Central American rodents named for their large, fur-lined cheek pouches. The “pockets” open externally on each side of the mouth and extend from the face to the shoulders; they can be everted for cleaning. The lips can be closed behind the protruding, chisel-like upper front teeth, which thereby allows the.

All pocket gophers of Utah belong to the genus are only two species within the state, Thomomys bottae with twenty-four subspecies and Thomomys talpoides with eleven subspecies.

Due to marked mutational capacities and ready response to environmental pressures and sedentary habits, pocket gophers differentiate readily into numerous subspecies. The genus Cratogeomys, particularly members of the Cratogeomys gymnurus species group, account for much of the high species diversity of pocket gophers in Revision of the pocket gophers of the genus Thomomys.

The genus Cratogeomys, particularly members of the Cratogeomys gymnurus species group, account for much of the high species diversity of pocket gophers in the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt. Likewise, in the ensuing twenty years there were only three papers, one in by C.

The first pocket gophers collected in western Washington were considered to be subspecies of the northern pocket gopher (Thomomys talpoides) (Goldman ), until when the complex of pocket gophers found in western Washington was determined to be more similar to the western pocket gopher (T.
