SPECIES Stenocephalemys griseicauda

Author:F. Petter, 1972.
Citation:Mammalia, 36: 171.
Common Name:Gray-tailed Stenocephalemys
Type Locality:Ethiopia, Bale Mtns, Dinsho.
Distribution:Ethiopia; S and N highlands, 2400-3900 m (Demeter and Topal, 1982; Yalden, 1988; Yalden and Largen, 1992).
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (nt).
Comments:Another Ethiopian mountain endemic that overlaps altitudinally with S. albocaudata but occupies bushy areas rather than moorland (Yalden, 1988). Chromosomal data documented by Corti et al. (1999) and Lavrenchenko et al. (1999). Distribution in isolated Harenna Forest of S Ethiopia documented by Lavrenchenko (2000). Yalden et al. (19965) cited Schlitter as collecting this species and S. albocaudata on Mt Entoto north of Addis Ababa, which would be west of the Rift Valley, but those records have yet to be documented by publication.
