SPECIES Tupaia splendidula

Author:Gray, 1865.
Citation:Proc. Zool. Soc. Lond., 1865: 322, pl. 12.
Common Name:Ruddy Treeshrew
Type Locality:Borneo (no specific locality).
Distribution:Malaysia and Indonesia, including S Borneo (splendidula) and Karimata Isl (carimatae), Bunguran (natunae) and Laut (lucida) in the N Natuna Isls, and Riabu (riabus) in the Anambas Isls.
Status:CITES Appendix II; IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:T. s. lucida and T. s. natunae of the Natuna Isls are very distinctive forms; although traditionally included in T. splendidula they may be more closely allied to T. glis. Because of its probable affinity to Natuna treeshrews, T. riabus from Riabu (Anambas Isls) is provisionally placed here rather than with T. glis.
