SPECIES Maxomys baeodon

Author:Thomas, 1894.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 6, 14: 452.
Common Name:Small Bornean Maxomys
Type Locality:Malaysia, Sabah (N Borneo), Mt Kinabalu.
Distribution:Known only from a few scattered localities in Sabah and Sarawak (N Borneo); occurs between 900 and 1400 m on Mt Kinabalu in Sabah (Md Nor, 2001).
Status:IUCN Endangered.
Comments:A very distinctive species still represented in museum collections by few specimens (Musser et al., 1979). The record from Gunung Palung National Park in SW Kalimantan (Blundell, 1996) is erroneous and represents misidentified M. whiteheadi (A. J. Gorog, pers. comm., 2001). Part of the suite of murines endemic to Borneo (Musser, 1986; also see account of Chiropodomys major).
