Juscelinomys is a genus of burrowing mice. The name is derived from Brazilian president Juscelino Kubitschek de Oliveira who created the city of Brasilia where the Brasilia Burrowing Mouse was discovered.There are two living species:

* †J. candango Brasilia Burrowing Mouse
* J. guaporensis Rio Guaporé Burrowing Mouse
* J. huanchacae Huanchaca Burrowing Mouse

A fourth species, J. talpinus, is known only from subfossil remains. Some authorities treat it as a distinct species or a senior synonym for one or all species in Juscelinomys (Musser and Carleton, 2005).
