SPECIES Niviventer brahma

Author:Thomas, 1914.
Citation:J. Bombay Nat. Hist. Soc., 23: 232.
Common Name:Brahman Niviventer
Type Locality:NE India, NE Arunachal Pradesh, Anzong Valley in Mishmi Hills, 6000 ft (1830 m).
Distribution:NE India (NE Arunachal Pradesh), N Burma (Adung Valley and Nyetmaw River region), and SW China (NW Yunnan; Wang, 2003).
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Morphological and geographic limits outlined by Musser (1970b, 1973a, 1981b), who also reported that the species is represented by few specimens, and is most closely related to N. eha in morphological features, a conclusion echoed by Corbet and Hill (1992). We have not examined the material upon which the Chinese record is based.
