SPECIES Crocidura maxi

Author:Sody, 1936.
Citation:Natuurk. Tijdschr. Ned.-Ind., 96: 53.
Common Name:Javanese Shrew
Type Locality:Indonesia, Java, East Java.
Distribution:Java, Lesser Sunda Isls (Bali, Sumbawa, Komodo, Sumba, Flores, Alor, Roti, Timor), and Ambon (Moluccas, Indonesia).
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Occurs sympatrically with monticola in Java; see Jenkins (1982) and Kitchener et al. (1994a). Ruedi (1995) questioned the validity of maxi but stated (p. 243) that "Eastern representatives, which are usually larger, with a flatter skull profile than nominal and central forms, could be treated as a distinct subspecies, C. monticola maxi."
