SPECIES Crocidura monticola

Author:Peters, 1870.
Citation:Monatsb. K. Preuss. Akad. Wiss. Berlin, 1870: 584.
Common Name:Sunda Shrew
Type Locality:Indonesia, Java, Mount Lawu, near Surakarta.
Distribution:Borneo, Sumatra, Java, doubtfully Peninsular Malaysia.
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc) as C. monticola, Data Deficient as C. minuta.
Comments:Revised by Jenkins (1982) and Ruedi (1995); latter author included also maxi as a synonym. However, Kitchener et al. (1994a) recognized maxi and monticola and defined the range as given above. C. minuta was listed as a species in the previous edition (Hutterer, 1993a); the name is most probably a synonym of monticola; see Jenkins (1982) and Ruedi (1995).
