SPECIES Gerbillus (Hendecapleura) brockmani

Author:Thomas, 1910.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 8, 5: 420.
Common Name:Brockman’s Gerbil
Type Locality:Somalia, Burao, 85 mi (137 km) S Berbera.
Status:IUCN – Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Subgenus Hendecapleura. Petter (1975b) placed brockmani in synonymy with G. nanus, but no evidence indicates that G. nanus occurs anywhere remotely near Somalia (see Lay, 1983). The phylogenetic affinities of G. brockmani require clarification.
