Author:Thomas, 1891.
Citation:Ann. Mus. Civ. Stor. Nat. Genova, ser. 2, 10: 884.
Common Name:Indochinese Chiromyscus
Type Locality:E Burma, Karin Hills.
Distribution:SW China (S Yunnan; Wang, 2003), E Burma, N Thailand (J. T. Marshall, Jr., 1977a), Vietnam (Dang et al., 1994), Laos (Aplin et al., 2003c; Smith et al., In Press; AMNH 272902); see Musser (1981b) and Corbet and Hill (1992).

This arboreal species is morphologically similar to Niviventer langbianis (Musser and Lunde, ms) and easily confused with it, but generally has a longer molar row, higher supraorbital and temporal cranial ridging, a bicolored or mottled tail, more expansive orange pattern on upperparts, and a nail-like claw on each hallux instead of a small claw.
