SPECIES Mustela lutreolina

Author:Robinson and Thomas, 1917.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 8, 20: 261-262.
Common Name:Indonesian Mountain Weasel
Type Locality:"Tjibodas, West Java, 5500' [1676 m]"; identified by Van Bree and Boeadi (1978) as "644'S 10700'E".
Distribution:Indonesia (Java, Sumatra).
Status:IUCN Endangered.
Comments:Revised by Van Bree and Boeadi (1978). Ellerman and Morrison-Scott (1951) implied, and Heptner et al. (1967), Corbet (1978), and Lekagul and McNeely (1988) believed lutreolina and sibirica to be conspecific; however this has not been supported by primary studies (Brongersma, 1940; Van Bree and Boeadi, 1978). Youngman (1982) placed lutreolina in the subgenus Lutreola, Abramov (1999) placed it in the subgenus Kolonokus.
