SPECIES Batomys granti

Author:Thomas, 1895.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 6, 16: 162.
Common Name:Luzon Batomys
Type Locality:Philippines, N Luzon Isl, Mountain Province, Mt Data, 7000 ft (2134 m).
Distribution:Greater Luzon Faunal Region. Recorded only from mountain forests of Luzon Isl, Mt Data in north and Mt Isarog in SE peninsula; probably more widespread in mountains of N Luzon (Heaney et al., 1998).
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Morphological features indicate B. granti to be more closely related to B. salomonseni than to other species of Batomys (Musser et al., 1998a). Karyotype (2n = FN = 52) indistinguishable between samples from S and N regions of Luzon, and from B. salomonseni (Rickart and Heaney, 2002; Rickart and Musser, 1993). Altitudinal range and ecological information provided by Heaney et al. (1999).
