Peromyscus polionotus ssp. decoloratus A. H. Howell

Pallid Beach Deermouse (Peromyscus polionotus ssp. decoloratus)

The Pallid Beach Deermouse was a subspecies of the Oldfield Deermouse (Peromyscus polionotus (Wagner)) that inhabited a small area of coastal sand dunes along the Atlantic coast of Florida, USA.

This form was quite abundant when it was described in 1939, however the populationds disappeared subsequently and no individual was found ever since, thus this subspecies is now redarded as being extinct.
