SPECIES Echymipera kalubu

Author:Fischer, 1829.
Citation:Synopsis Mammal.: 274.
Common Name:Common Echymipera
Type Locality:Indonesia, Prov. of Papua (= Irian Jaya), Sorong Div., Waigeo Isl.
Distribution:New Guinea and adjacent small islands including Bismarck Arch., Yapen, Biak-Supiori, Waigeo, Misool and Salawati Isls.
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc). Common.
Comments:The name kalubu has been attributed to Lesson, 1828, Dict. Class. Hist. Nat., 13:200; but see Husson (1955:290). According to Westerman et al. (2001), the molecular relationships of E. k. cockerelli (from New Britain and Duke of York Isl) are with E. rufescens rather than with other E. kalubu, but it is morphologically similar to kalubu.
