Ekbletomys hypenemus is an extinctoryzomyine rodent from the islands of Antigua and Barbuda, Lesser Antilles. It was described as the only species of the subgenus Ekbletomys of genus Oryzomys in a 1962 Ph.D. thesis, but that name is not available under the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature and the species remains formally unnamed. It is currently referred to as Ekbletomys hypenemus in the absence of a formally available name. The species is now thought to be extinct, but association with introduced Rattus indicates that it survived until after 1500 CE on Antigua.
