Table 3 New taxonomic arrangement proposed for the tribe Sciurini based on the species analyzed and recognized as valid in this study. We did not analyze material from Tamiasciurus fremonti sensu [24], Microsciurus santanderensis and M. simonsi sensu [2], which are treated as valid but not listed below

From: Museomics of tree squirrels: a dense taxon sampling of mitogenomes reveals hidden diversity, phenotypic convergence, and the need of a taxonomic overhaul
