Eligmodontia typus is a species of rodent in the Cricetidae family.
It is found in Argentina and Chile. The northernmost population might represent a distinct species, E. bolsonensis, to which the common name Highland Gerbil Mouse would apply. The lowland population would then be known as Eastern Patagonian Gerbil Mouse or Eastern Patagonian Laucha.
