The complex taxonomic history of the genus Bolomys Thomas, 1916, is reviewed, the diagnosis of Bolomys is revised, and the taxonomy and distribution of the three species now known from Bolivia are summarized. Bolomys amoenus, formerly known only from Peru, is reported from two central Bolivian localities at 3875 to 4000 m in the department of Cochabamba, B. lactens of Argentina is now known from one Bolivian locality at 2100 m in Tarija, and B. lenguarum is known from dozens of localities mostly in the lowlands (below 500 m) of Beni and Santa Cruz but also up to 2500 m in Santa Cruz.
