SPECIES Taeromys arcuatus

Author:Tate and Archbold, 1935.
Citation:Am. Mus. Novit., 802: 9.
Common Name:Southeastern Mountain Taeromys
Type Locality:Indonesia, SE Sulawesi, Pegunnungan Mekongga (= Mengkoka), Tanke Salokko (highest spot on the mountain), 03E35'S/121E15'E, 1500 m.
Distribution:Known only from the type locality.
Status:IUCN Vulnerable.
Comments:Closest relative is an undescribed species in mountains of C Sulawesi (Musser and Holden, 1991; Musser, ms). This geographic pattern, in which a species in the central part of the island has a close ally on the SE Peninsula, is repeated by Taeromys callitrichus (central) and T. microbullatus (southeast), an undescribed species of Maxomys (central) and M. dollmani (southeast), and Rattus marmosurus (central) and R. salocco (southeast). Sody (1941) proposed Arcuomys for arcuatus.
