SPECIES Tupaia moellendorffi

Author:Matschie, 1898.
Citation:Sitzb. Ges. Naturf. Fr. Berlin: 39.
Common Name:Calamian Treeshrew
Type Locality:Philippines, Culion Isl.
Distribution:Calamian Isls (Busuanga, Culion) and Cuyo in the Philippines.
Status:CITES Appendix II; IUCN Vulnerable (as included in T. palawanensis).
Comments:The three named forms included here appear more closely-related to each another than any is to T. palawanensis (where they are usually arranged; e.g. Heaney et al., 1998) and I provisionally separate them here as a distinctive complex; see also comments by Lyon (1913). This arrangement is somewhat more consistent with species-boundaries traditionally recognized in squirrels from the Palawan region (see accounts of Sundasciurus).
