SPECIES Paguma larvata

Author:C. E. H. Smith, 1827.
Citation:In Griffith et al., Anim. Kingdom, 2: 281.
Common Name:Masked Palm Civet
Type Locality:Not given. Fixed by Temminck (1841) as "Nepal". Gray (1864) discounted this because he knew of no specimens from Nepal, and reassigned the name to two specimens from Canton, China collected by J. R. Reeve (Pocock, 1934b).
Distribution:Bangladesh, Burma, Cambodia, China (Hainan north to Hopei, Shanxi and the vicinity of Beijing), India (and S Andaman Isls), Indonesia (Kalimantan, Sumatra), Japan (introduced), Laos, Malaysia (Sabah, Sarawak, West), Nepal, Pakistan, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam.
Status:CITES Appendix III (India); IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Pocock (1934b) included Paradoxurus tytlerii. P. lanigera, the "imperfect, no doubt immature skin, without skull (B.M. no. 43.1.12.103)" provisionally recognized as separate by Pocock (1941a:416) does not contain diagnostic features that would definitively align the specimen with Paguma (Ellerman and Morrison-Scott, 1951). Synonyms allocated according to Pocock (1934b) and Ellerman and Morrison-Scott (1951).
