SPECIES Uromys (Cyromys) rex

Author:Thomas, 1888.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 6, 1: 157.
Common Name:King Uromys
Type Locality:Solomon Isls, Guadalcanal Isl, Aola.
Distribution:Found only on Guadalcanal Isl.
Status:IUCN Critically Endangered.
Comments:Subgenus Cyromys. Another Guadalcanal species that has historically been placed in either genus Uromys or Cyromys, but is currently allocated to the former (Flannery and Wickler, 1990; Groves and Flannery, 1994). Still represented by less than a dozen specimens (Flannery, 1991), and likely the only species in subgenus Cyromys that is not extinct (Flannery, 1995b).
