SPECIES Euroscaptor parvidens

Author:Miller, 1940.
Citation:J. Mammal., 21: 203.
Common Name:Small-toothed Mole
Type Locality:Vietnam, Di Linh, Blao Forest Station.
Distribution:Known from type locality and Rakho on the Chinese border.
Status:IUCN Critically Endangered.
Comments:Ellerman and Morrison-Scott (1966:40) included this species in [E]. micrura leucura. Corbet (1978c:33) mentioned leucura as a species, but Gureev (1979:274) also listed parvidens in the Euroscaptor group of Talpa, where Miller (1940b:444) put his species soon after description. Corbet and Hill (1991:38) did not list parvidens and one may assume that they included it in micrura.
