Abrothrix olivaceus markhami, also known as the Wellington Akodont[2] or Markham's Grass Mouse,[1] is a subspecies of the South American rodent Abrothrix olivaceus. It occurs on Wellington Island and the nearby Southern Patagonian Ice Field in southern Chile. It was previously recognized as a valid species, but is close to other recognized subspecies of A. olivaceus.[3]
