Citation:Experientia, 51: 175, Fig. 1.
Common Name:Hutan Shrew
Type Locality:Indonesia, N Sumatra, Aceh, Gunung Leuser N.P., Alas Valley (300 m), Ketambe (0331'N, 9746'E).

Comments:A report by Ruedi and Vogel (1995:175) presenting the new name, the diagnostic karyotype (2n = 36-38, FN = 54), the type locality (Ketambe, N Sumatra), specimen catalog numbers, and a comparison with other SE Asian species appeared earlier in print (February, 1995) than the full taxonomic description by Ruedi (November, 1995:227), and thus constitutes the first valid description.
