The geodispersal area cladogram indicates the relative timing in which barriers were removed facilitating faunal exchange (Rode & Lieberman 2005).
Other groups, which have launched hypotheses of relationship, either with or without explicit cladograms are: discoidalis (Lynch 1989) (with explicit cladogram), using external and cranial characters, and sulcatus (Lynch 1997) (with explicit cladogram), finding for these relationships nine characters from the skull.

Phylogenetic analysis resulted in 16 equally parsimonious cladograms, which contained the following well-supported groups: (1) a monophyletic Oryzomyini, (2) a clade containing all oryzomyines except Scolomys and Zygodontomys, (3) a clade containing Oecomys, Handleyomys, and several species of forest-dwelling Oryzomys, and (4) a clade containing the remaining oryzomyine taxa.
This field produces cladograms, branching tree diagrams, illustrating hypotheses about which taxa are more closely related to each other.
