SPECIES Chodsigoa parva

Author:G. M. Allen, 1923.
Citation:Am. Mus. Novit., 100: 5.
Common Name:Pygmy Brown-toothed Shrew
Type Locality:China, W Yunnan, Likiang Range, Ssushancheng.
Distribution:Known only from the type locality.
Comments:Hoffmann (1985b) synonymized C. parva with C. lamula and was followed by Corbet and Hill (1992), but Lunde et al. (2003b) demonstrated that C. parva is much smaller than C. lamula and represents a good species known only by the type series, a conclusion already drawn by Allen (1938).
