Table 2 External and craniodental measurements of Rhyncholestes raphanurus Osgood for pooled samples from Chiloé Island, 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 indicate Coefficient of Variability (CV) values higher than seven, following Bedeian and Mossholder [34]
