Ichthyomyines are New World cricetid
rodents of the subfamily Sigmodontinae Wagner, 1843, which are ecologically and morphologically distinctive (Voss, 1988, 2015).
Small, brachydont cricetid
rodent having protolophule II [paraloph] not aligned with the anterior arm of the hypocone in upper molars (M), but with the entolophid aligned with the anterior arm of the protoconid in lower molars (m).
The African giant rat (AGR) (Cricetomys gambianus) also known as Gambian rat is wild cricetid
rodent with an average adult weight of 1.
4 Ma, that is before the crisis, coinciding with the dispersal of more derived cricetids

Comparative swimming performances in selected cricetid
and heteromyid rodents.
They prefer intermediate-sized, inactive mammals such as microtine rodents, but will take more active cricetid
species if microtines are not available.
For example, cricetid
rodents can consume large amounts of tree seeds in old fields (Janzen 1971, Gill and Marks 1991, flowers and Dooley 1993) and thereby delay colonization.
Over both dry and rainy seasons, 27 total individuals of five species of cricetid
rodents were trapped in coastal sage scrub: Neotoma fuscipes (1), N.
variegatus, the cricetid
mouse Peromyscus difficilis, and the woodrats Neotoma albigula, N.

The nonvolant assemblage includes only cricetid

rodents of small size distributed in South and Central America (Musser and Carleton 2005, Weksler and Bonvicino 2005).
In the locality AL2D, a set of cricetid
teeth, characterized by the absence of mesolophid in the m1 and of the anterior protolophule in M1 and M2, together with the presence of a crest-like anteroconid and a double anterolophulid in m1 resembles Apocricetus.
