SPECIES Myosorex rumpii

Author:Heim de Balsac, 1968.
Citation:Bonn. Zool. Beitr., 19: 20.
Common Name:Rumpi Mouse Shrew
Type Locality:Cameroon, "Rumpi-Hills, 1100 mètres".
Distribution:Known only from the type locality.
Status:IUCN – Critically Endangered.
Comments:The holotype and only known specimen is so unique (Heim de Balsac, 1968b, fig. 4) that it is considered to represent a valid species. Heim de Balsac (1968b) himself was uncertain about the status of this taxon; while he formally named it M. eisentrauti rumpii, he labeled all figures and the map with "Myosorex rumpii".
