SPECIES Millardia gleadowi

Author:Murray, 1885.
Actual Date:1886
Citation:Proc. Zool. Soc. Lond., 1885: 809.
Common Name:Sand-colored Metad
Type Locality:Pakistan, Clifton Plain, Karachi.
Distribution:S and C Pakistan on west side of Indus River (Roberts, 1977, 1997) and adjacent NW India (Agrawal, 2000).
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:A distinctive species morphologically unlike any other Millardia and adapted to semideserts of shifting sand dunes, clay flats, and rocky hillsides. Raman and Sharma (1977) reported essentially no similarity between karyotypes of M. meltada and M. gleadowi. Its inclusion in Millardia should be reexamined. Indian population reviewed by Agrawal (2000); ecology and distribution in Gujarat State of NW India recorded by Chakraborty and Agrawal (2000).
