SPECIES Crunomys celebensis

Author:Musser, 1982.
Citation:Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 174: 16.
Common Name:Sulawesi Shrew Mouse
Type Locality:Indonesia, C Sulawesi, near Tomado, 3500 ft (1067 m).
Distribution:C Sulawesi; known only from tropical lowland evergreen rainforest formations in mountain valley of Danau Lindu and upper drainage of Sungai Miu in the Kulawi region.
Status:IUCN Endangered.
Comments:A small-bodied, dark-furred terrestrial insectivore recorded by only three specimens. Morphologically very distinct from Philippine species of Crunomys, and without close relatives on Sulawesi except for possibly Sommeromys, another Sulawesian endemic (Musser, 1982c; Musser and Durden, 2002). Spermatozoal morphology distinctive (Breed and Musser, 1991), but unrevealing in assessing phylogenetic relationships. Compared with Philippine species of Crunomys by Rickart et al. (1998); morphology reviewed and contrasted with Sommeromys by Musser and Durden (2002; see that account).
