SPECIES Haeromys pusillus

Author:Thomas, 1893.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 6, 11: 232.
Common Name:Sundaic Haeromys
Type Locality:Malaysia, Sabah, Mt Kinabalu.
Distribution:Documented (Musser, ms) by six examples from Borneo (Sarawak, Sabah, E and SW Kalimantan) and two from the Greater Palawan Faunal Region of the Philippines (one from Palawan, the other from Calauit Isl).
Status:IUCN Vulnerable.
Comments:The two Philippine specimens have paler underparts on head and body and dorsal metatarsal surfaces than does the Bornean sample and also differ slightly in dental traits, but because there are so few specimens from either Borneo or the Greater Palawan Faunal Region, the significance of this variation has yet to be determined. Most closely related to H. margarettae, and included, incorrectly in our view, in that species by Payne et al. (1985).
