Genetic and morphologic characteristics were analysed and compared for Sylvilagus audubonii and S. floridanus collected from two locations in Texas. The two species are genetically similar (S = 0.884). Mean individual heterozygosity was calculated to be 0.028 and 0.045 for S. floridanus and S. audubonii respectively. Species differences were detected in 11 of 22 morphologic characters. Significant differences in variable means were not reflected in significant size and shape differences among variability profiles.
