SPECIES Crocidura maurisca

Author:Thomas, 1904.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 7, 14: 239.
Common Name:Gracile Naked-tailed Shrew
Type Locality:Uganda, Entebbe.
Distribution:Swamps and primary forest in Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi; a single record from Gabon.
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Part of the C. maurisca-littoralis species group; the extinct balsamifera from Ancient Egypt is probably related (Hutterer, 1994). A record from Gabon (Goodman et al., 2001a) is far outside of the known range of the species.
