SPECIES Tachyoryctes storeyi

Author:Thomas, 1909.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 8, 5: 276.
Common Name:Storey’s African Mole Rat
Type Locality:SW Kenya, Lake Elmenteita.
Distribution:Recorded only from the type locality.
Comments:Thomas (1909b) remarked that T. storeyi "is readily distinguishable by its comparatively large size, long and well-defined brain-case, and long nasals." Only T. annectens exceeds T. storeyi in body size, and the relationships and stature between the two and other large-bodied taxa remain to be uncovered.
