Mesocapromys is a genus of rodent in the family Capromyidae.[1] The genus is restricted to Cuba and associated islands.

Systematics

Mesocapromys contains the five following species:[1]

Phylogeny

Within Capromyidae, the closest relative of Mesocapromys is the genus Mysateles. Both genera are the sister group to Capromys, and then Geocapromys is a more distant genus. In turn, these four genera belong to the tribe Capromyini, and are the sister group to Plagiodontia.
