SPECIES Echiothrix leucura

Author:Gray, 1867.
Citation:Proc. Zool. Soc. Lond., 1867: 600.
Common Name:Northern Sulawesi Echiothrix
Type Locality:Indonesia, Sulawesi, NE tip of N peninsula, Manado (= Menado), 01E30'N/124E50'E, coastal plain near sea level (as restricted by Tate, 1936:586).
Distribution:Sulawesi: NE tip of the N peninsula, sea level to 1100 m in lowland tropical evergreen rainforest (Musser, 1990; Musser, ms).
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:A significantly larger relative of E. centrosa, with somewhat more elaborate molar occlusal patterns. Gray (1867a) thought the holotype came from Australia, but Jentink (1883) speculated the species would prove to be found only on Sulawesi. Laurie and Hill (1954) listed the type locality as probably N Sulawesi, but Tate (1936) had already restricted it to the NE tip of the N peninsula by designating Manado.
