SPECIES Tupaia palawanensis

Author:Thomas, 1894.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 6, 9: 251.
Common Name:Palawan Treeshrew
Type Locality:Philippines, Palawan Isl.
Distribution:Palawan and Balabac in the Philippines.
Status:CITES Appendix II; IUCN Vulnerable.
Comments:Included in T. glis by Corbet (in Corbet and Hill, 1992) and many earlier authors, but specific separation is supported by pelage coloration differences, craniodental features (K. H. Han et al., 2000a), karyotypic data (Arrighi et al., 1969), and immunological distances (Dene et al., 1978). T. moellendorffi is provisionally separated from palawanensis here (see account above).
