SPECIES Hylomyscus carillus

Author:Thomas, 1904.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 7, 13: 418.
Common Name:Angolan Hylomyscus
Type Locality:Angola, Andongo, Pungo, 1200 m.
Distribution:WC Angola; limits unknown (Crawford-Cabral, 1998, claimed the species occurs in SE Dem. Rep. Congo).
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Associated with either H. aeta (Hatt, 1940a) or H. alleni (G. M. Allen, 1939), the affinities of carillus may be closer to H. stella (based on our study of the holotype and series from Pungo in BMNH). We have identified three distinct species of Hylomyscus occurring in Angola: H. carillus, an unnamed population related to East African H. denniae, and H. stella (specimens in AMNH, BMNH, and FMNH). Crawford-Cabral (1998) reviewed and mapped records he identified as H. carillus and regarded this as the only species in Angola; some of his records likely represent the other two species.
