SPECIES Sundamys infraluteus

Author:Thomas, 1888.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 6, 2: 409.
Common Name:Mountain Sundamys
Type Locality:Malaysia, Sabah (N Borneo), Kinabalu.
Distribution:Gunung Kinabalu, 920-2930 m (Md Nor, 2001), and Gunung Trus Madi in Sabah; W mountain chain of Sumatra, 700-2400 m.
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:A montane species related to S. muelleri, which occurs at middle altitudes and lowlands; narrowly sympatric with it on both N Borneo and Sumatra. Specimens from each island differ slightly in pelage tone and craniodental dimensions and proportions, but the sample from Sumatra (atchinus) is small and significance of the differences between it and the much larger series from Sabah requires study of more material from Sumatra (Musser and Newcomb, 1983).
