Table 1 External and craniodental measurements of Rhyncholestes raphanurus Osgood, for pooled samples from continental Chile. Total number of specimens (n), mean (X), SD, minimum and maximum of each variable, and coefficient of variation are presented for each locality. Asterisks mark Coefficient of Variation (CV) values higher than seven, following Bedeian and Mossholder [34]
