SPECIES Callosciurus orestes

Author:Thomas, 1895.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 6, 15: 529.
Common Name:Borneo Black-banded Squirrel
Type Locality:Malaysia, Sarawak, Mount Dulit, 4000 ft. (1219 m)
Distribution:Sabah and Sarawak (Borneo), Malaysia, at middle elevations (Payne et al., 1985).
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Formerly considered a subspecies of C. nigrovittatus (e.g., Medway, 1977:92), but clearly distinct (Payne et al., 1985). Includes Glyphotes canalvus, which Moore (1959) placed in subgenus Hessonoglyphotes; these names are now synonyms of Callosciurus. Closely related to adamsi (see comments therein).
