SPECIES Maxomys panglima

Author:Robinson, 1921.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 9, 7: 235.
Common Name:Palawan Maxomys
Type Locality:Philippines, Palawan Isl.
Distribution:Greater Palawan Faunal Region; endemic to Balabac, Palawan, Busuanga, Calauit, and Culion Isls; politically part of Philippines, but faunistically an extension of the Sunda Shelf. Recorded from primary and secondary tropical lowland evergreen rainforest from sea level to 1000 m (Heaney et al., 1998).
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (nt).
Comments:Treated in the past as a subspecies of M. surifer, but morphological features support its independence as a species; uncertain whether M. panglima is more closely related to M. surifer or M. rajah (Musser et al., 1979). Joins Palawanomys furvus and Chiropodomys calamianus as the only recorded murines endemic to the Greater Palawan Faunal Region.
