Dorothys' Slender Opossum
The '''Dorothys' Slender Opossum'(Marmosops dorothea) is a species of opossum in the Didelphidae family. It is endemic to Bolivia. It is threatened by habitat loss.
Recent research suggests that M. dorotheais a synonym of M. noctivagus, the White-bellied Slender Opossum. On the other hand, M. ocellatus, a junior synonym of M. dorethea, may be a separate valid species.Robert S. Voss, Teresa Tarifa, and Eric Yensen, American Museum Novitates'' 3466, December 30, 2004.
