SPECIES Crateromys schadenbergi

Author:Meyer, 1895.
Citation:Abh. Mus. Dresden, 6: 1.
Common Name:Luzon Crateromys
Type Locality:Philippines, N Luzon Isl, Mountain Province, Mt Data.
Distribution:Greater Luzon Faunal Region in the Philippines. Endemic to the mountains of N Luzon (Heaney et al., 1998; Oliver et al., 1993; Sanborn, 1952a).
Status:IUCN Vulnerable.
Comments:The largest-bodied of all the species of Crateromys and an arboreal inhabitant of oak-pine forest where it builds stick-nests in tree crowns for shelter (Oliver et al., 1993; Heaney et al., 1998). In many ways, C. schadenbergi is an ecological and morphological equivalent of large-bodied tropical tree squirrels (Sciuridae), which do not occur in the Greater Luzon Faunal Region.
