Table 5 Results of a non– parametric Kruskal–Wallis analysis of variance (ANOVA), calculated from Mosimann’s variables for differences between continental and Chiloé Island samples of Rhyncholestes raphaunurus Osgood. Total number of specimens (n), and number of specimens for continental Chile and Chiloé Island are indicated for each measurement. Asterisks mark significant differences (if existent) for sequential Bonferroni-corrected values, following Rice [39]. See text for variable abbreviations
