SPECIES Petinomys sagitta

Author:Linnaeus, 1766.
Citation:Syst. Nat., 12th ed., 1: 88.
Common Name:Arrow Flying Squirrel
Type Locality:Indonesia, Java.
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Formerly included in Hylopetes; see Medway (1977:102). May be conspecific with genibarbis; see Ellerman and Morrison-Scott (1955:31). Medway (1977:102) considered it inadvisable to synonymize sagitta and genibarbis until the relationship has been certainly established. Corbet and Hill (1992) considered sagitta as incertae sedis.
