SPECIES Crocidura malayana

Author:Robinson and Kloss, 1911.
Citation:J. Fed. Malay St. Mus., 4: 241-247.
Common Name:Malayan Shrew
Type Locality:Malaysia, Perak, Maxwell's Hill.
Distribution:Malay Peninsula and offshore islands south of the Isthmus of Kra (Pulau Aor and Pulau Redang).
Status:IUCN Endangered.
Comments:This species was included in fuliginosa by Jenkins (1976, 1982), but Ruedi et al. (1990) reported two different karyotypes from sympatric populations in Peninsular Malaysia. They provisionally used malayana for the sibling species with 2n = 38-40, and FN = 62-68. The listing of synonms follows Ruedi (1995) who subsequently reviewed the species.
