SPECIES Episoriculus fumidus

Author:Thomas, 1913.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 8, 11: 216.
Common Name:Taiwanese Brown-toothed Shrew
Type Locality:Taiwan, Chiai Hsien, "Mt. Arisan (= Alishan); Central Formosa. Alt. 8,000 [2438 m]".
Distribution:Montane forests of Taiwan.
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc) as Soriculus fumidus.
Comments:Formerly included in caudatus by Ellerman and Morrison-Scott (1951:59), but see Jameson and Jones (1977:474) and Hoffmann (1985b), who included sodalis (now in Chodsigoa) in fumidus. Motokawa et al. (1998) described the karyotype (2n = 64, FN = 116) and distribution of Episoriculus fumidus that occurs symatrically with Chodsigoa sodalis in Taiwan. A RNA sequence was published by Querouil et al. (2001) and Corneli (2002) under the name Soriculus fumidus.
