SPECIES Sorex (Otisorex) milleri

Author:Jackson, 1947.
Citation:Proc. Biol. Soc. Wash., 60: 131.
Common Name:Carmen Mountain Shrew
Type Locality:"Madera Camp, altitude 8,000 feet [2438 m], Carmen Mountains, Coahuila, Mexico".

Comments:Subgenus Otisorex. Controversial opinions on the systematic status of milleri exist; Findley (1955a) regarded it as a morphologically distinct relict population allied to cinereus and accepted its specific status, as did Hall (1981) and Junge and Hoffmann (1981); while van Zyll de Jong and Kirkland (1989) suggested that milleri may not merit full specific status.
