SPECIES Crocidura parvipes

Author:Osgood, 1910.
Citation:Field Mus. Nat. Hist. Publ., Zool. Ser., 10: 19.
Common Name:Small-footed Shrew
Type Locality:Kenya, "Voi, British East Africa".
Distribution:Africa; Guinea and Sudan savanna from Cameroon to S Sudan, Ethiopia (Hutterer and Yalden, 1990), Kenya, Tanzania, S Dem. Rep. Congo, Zambia to Angola (Hutterer, 1986a:31).
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:A cranially and externally distinct group of medium-sized savanna shrews. Included in subgenus Afrosorex by Hutterer (1986a). Considerable size variation, however, may indicate that more than one species is included. Karyotypes from Ethiopia (2n = 50; Bannikova et al., 2001b) and from Cameroon (2n = 52, FN = 66; Schlitter et al., 1999) are different. Specimens recorded as Crocidura butleri percivali from Machakos, Kenya (Harrison and Bates, 1986) represent C. parvipes.
