SPECIES Crunomys fallax

Author:Thomas, 1897.
Citation:Trans. Zool. Soc. Lond., 14: 394.
Common Name:Luzon Shrew Mouse
Type Locality:Philippines, NC Luzon Isl, Isabella Province, Sierra Madre Range, 1000 ft (305 m).
Distribution:Greater Luzon Faunal Region. Known only from the type locality.
Status:IUCN Critically Endangered.
Comments:Recorded only by the holotype. Morphologically more similar to the Philippine C. melanius and C. suncoides than to the Sulawesian C. celebensis (Musser, 1982c; Rickart et al., 1998). Two specimens reported as C. fallax by Danielsen et al. (1994) and Mallari and Jensen (1993) that were trapped in mossy forest in the Sierra Madre Range are actually Archboldomys musseri (Rickart et al., 1998:22).
