Author:Miller and Hollister, 1921.
Citation:Proc. Biol. Soc. Wash., 34: 94.
Common Name:Sulawesi Soft-furred Rat
Type Locality:Indonesia, C Sulawesi, Gunung Lehio, above 6000 ft (1830 m).
Distribution:C Sulawesi; known only by small samples from a few places in montane tropical rainforest formations (Musser, 1970d; Musser and Holden, 1991), 1800-2300 m; probably occurs throughout central core of the island in montane forest habitats.
