SPECIES Brachytarsomys villosa

Author:F. Petter, 1962.
Citation:Mammalia, 26: 570.
Common Name:Hairy-tailed Antsangy
Type Locality:Description based on a specimen held in captivity in the "Vivarium de Tsimbazaza;" type locality requires formal restriction.
Distribution:So far recorded only from the western slopes of the Anjanaharibe-Sud Massif, N Madagascar.
Comments:Named as a subspecies by F. Petter (1962a) based on a zoo specimen, but Carleton and Schmidt (1990) suggested that villosa is a distinct species. Rediscovered in the wild by Goodman et al. (2001b) and contrasted to B. albicauda; distributional limits unknown.
