SPECIES Kadarsanomys sodyi

Author:Bartels, 1937.
Citation:Treubia, 16: 45.
Common Name:Javan Bamboo Rat
Type Locality:Indonesia, W Java, Gunung Pangrango-Gede, 1000 m.
Distribution:Java.
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (nt).
Comments:Morphology, natural history, and comparisons with Rattus and Lenothrix reported by Musser (1981a); the species is arboreal and was collected from nests in bamboo. Represented only by modern series collected in W Java during 1933-1935, and subfossil fragments from C and E Java (Musser and Newcomb, 1983). Among Sundaic murines, Kadarsanomys has no close phylogenetic allies, but some cranial and dental traits indicate a distant relationship with Rattus (Musser and Newcomb, 1983), and especially the Sulawesi R. xanthurus Group. Kadarsanomys sodyi joins Sundamys maxi, Mus vulcani, Niviventer lepturus, Maxomys bartelsii, and Pithecheir melanurus as a member of the murine fauna endemic to Java (Musser, 1986).
