A study of over 3800 adult specimens of Geomydoecus, representing material from over 3/4 of the recognized species of pocket gophers, has resulted in the redescription of the 11 previously described Geomydoecus species as well as the description of 31 new species and 3 new subspecies. Keys are provided for the identification of these forms.
