SPECIES Taterillus lacustris

Author:Thomas and Wroughton, 1907.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 7, 19: 37.
Common Name:Lake Chad Tateril
Type Locality:Nigeria, Lake Chad (= Kaddai).
Distribution:NE Nigeria and Cameroon.
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Rosevear (1969) synonymized lacustris with T. gracilis, but both Robbins (1974, 1977) and F. Petter (1975b) treated it as a distinct species. Analysis of serum proteins pointed to a closer relationship of T. lacustris to T. pygargus rather than T. gracilis (Tranier et al., 1974).
