SPECIES Crocidura indochinensis

Author:Robinson and Kloss, 1922.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser 9, 9: 88.
Common Name:Indochinese Shrew
Type Locality:Vietnam, Langbian Plateau, Dalat.
Distribution:Burma, N Thailand to Vietnam; Yunnan and Fujian (China); exact limits unknown.
Comments:This species is usually included in horsfieldii (Corbet and Hill, 1992; Jameson and Jones, 1977; Jenkins, 1976; Jiang and Hoffmann, 2001), but the restriction of horsfieldii to Sri Lanka and India and the removal of wuchinensis leaves indochinensis as the available name for the populations from Burma to China. Heaney and Timm (1983) reported this species from Vietnam under C. horsfieldii.
