Facts about the coruro

For example, the octodontid cururo (Spalacopus cyanus) is a highly fossorial species that lives in groups of 6-15 individuals (including adults and young from several generations) that share a burrow system (Ebensperger 1998; Reig 1970; Torres-Mura 1990).

The acoustic properties of calls are suitable for transmission above and underground providing thus further indirect evidence that coruros are not strictly confined to underground way of life.

The difference lies in the fact that tuco-tucos have very low gene flow, so they can speciate rapidly, while coruros are genetically homogeneous.
