SPECIES Solenodon paradoxus

Author:Brandt, 1833.
Citation:Mem. Acad. Imp. Sci., St. Petersbourg, ser. 6, 2: 459.
Common Name:Hispaniolan Solenodon
Type Locality:Dominican Republic (Hispaniola), Port-au-Prince (Baranova et al., 1981:4).
Distribution:S Haiti and Dominican Republic (Hispaniola).
Status:U.S. ESA Endangered; IUCN Endangered.
Comments:Systematics, biogeography and ecology reviewed by Ottenwalder (1999, 2001) who also described a distinctly smaller form from S Hispaniola as subspecies woodi. Allard et al. (2001) found a considerable genetic variability in the mitochondrial control region in samples from Hispaniola which may correspond to the morphological variation recognized by Ottenwalder (2001).
