The taxonomy and natural history of the long-whiskered rice rat, Oryzomys bombycinus Goldman, is reviewed. This species, known previously from a few localities in Costa Rica, Panamá, and Colombia is here definitely reported for the first time from Nicaragua and Ecuador. The currently recognized subspecies are provisionally retained on the basis of coat color. Habitat preferences and other ecological information are discussed.
