Author:Hutterer and Dieterlen, 1984.

Common Name:Gray-headed Grammomys
Type Locality:Kenya, Malindi.
Distribution:N Kenya and S Somalia.
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Karyotype of Kenyan sample and its significance documented by Hutterer and Dieterlen (1984), and chromosomal variation among individuals from S Somalia described and discussed by Roche et al. (1984). The latter authors assigned their sample to the G. dolichurus group and, independent of Hutterer and Dieterlen (1984), noted the distinctive quality of the Somalian species as indicated by chromosomal evidence.
