Common Name:Bate’s Shrew
Type Locality:"Como River, Gabon."
Distribution:Lowland forest in S Cameroon and Gabon.
Status:IUCN – Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Often included in poensis; specimens from Cameroon and Gabon have been reported as wimmeri; but see Brosset (1988). Karyotype (2n = 50, FN = 76) identical to that of nigeriae (Schlitter et al., 1999). This complex requires a pan-African revision.
