SPECIES Cremnomys cutchicus

Author:Wroughton, 1912.
Citation:J. Bombay Nat. Hist. Soc., 21: 340.
Common Name:Cutch Cremnomys
Type Locality:India, Gujarat, Kutch, Dhonsa.
Distribution:An Indian peninsular endemic: Kutch, Kathiawar, S Rajputana, Gujarat, and Bihar in NW India; Mysore, Bellary, and Eastern Ghats in S Peninsula (Agrawal, 2000; Chakraborty and Agrawal, 2000; Corbet and Hill, 1992).
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Ellerman (1961) suggested australis to be a valid species, but Agrawal (2000) did not find any significant patterns in geographic variation of morphological traits and treated all the named subspecies, including australis, as synonyms of C. cutchicus; Prakash et al. (1995a) synonymized rajput with medius. Chromosomal information and its significance reported by Raman and Sharna (1977), Sharma and Gadi (1977), Gadi and Sharma (1983), Rishi and Puri (1984), and Sobti and Gill (1984). Reviewed by Corbet and Hill (1992) and Agrawal (2000). Prakash et al. (1995a, b) documented distribution and ecology in Aravalli Ranges in Rajasthan, India, and Chakraborty and Agrawal (2000) recorded ecology, taxonomy, and distribution of samples from Gujarat State, NW India.
