| This small deermouse is common in both evergreen and deciduous forests and in shaded coffee fields, but its habitat is being squeezed as more and more land is cleared for agriculture. It lives along the coast and in the adjacent foothills, at elevations of 1,675 m or lower. It is a ground-dweller and is usually trapped near fallen logs, around tree roots, or among. Females have litters of 2 to 4 young.
Head and Body: 101-120 mm; Tail: 95-120 mm
