The "divisions" of Musser and Carleton [8] are indicated as well as taxa not included in our analyses. Taxa for which there is independent molecular or morphological evidence of phylogenetic position are underlined (see text for details). All the other ones should be treated as Murinae incertae sedis. † : fossil genus.
