emiliae due to the presence of all the diagnostic characters of the species: reddish-brown dorsal fur, pure white-colored ventral fur, tail (LT) much longer than body (HBL) with LT/HBL ratio of 1.77 (Table 1), the presence of an anteromedial alisphenoid process on the auditory bullae, interorbital region with beaded supraorbital margins, and the absence of a maxillary fenestra (Fig.
