SPECIES Batomys salomonseni

Author:Sanborn, 1953.
Citation:Vidensk. Medd. Nat. Foren. Kjobenhavn, 115: 287.
Common Name:Mindanao Batomys
Type Locality:Philippines, Mindanao Isl, Bukidnon Province, Mt Katanglad, 1600 m.
Distribution:Greater Mindanao Faunal Region on Isls of Mindanao, Dinagat, Biliran, and Leyte; tropical lowland evergreen rainforest to montane forest formations.
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Originally described as the only species in Mindanaomys (Sanborn, 1953), but that genus considered inseparable from Batomys (Misonne, 1969; Musser and Heaney, 1992; Musser et al., 1998a). Morphologically more closely related to B. granti than to B. dentatus or B. russatus (Musser et al., 1998a), and the standard karyotype (2n = FN = 52) is indistinguishable from that of B. granti (Rickart and Heaney, 2002; Rickart and Musser, 1993). Distributional and ecological information summarized by Rickart et al. (1993) and Heaney et al. (1999).
