SPECIES Crocidura pullata

Author:Miller, 1911.
Citation:Proc. Biol. Soc. Wash., 24: 241.
Common Name:Kashmir White-toothed Shrew
Type Locality:Kashmir, Kotihar, 7,000 ft. (2134 m).
Distribution:N India/Pakistan; Kashmir and Ladak (Jiang and Hoffmann 2001), otherwise unknown.
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:The name pullata has been provisonally (and partly erroneously) used by Hutterer (1993a) as a label to include Asian populations formerly called russula by Jenkins (1976) and many other authors. It can be seen from the measurements provided by Jameson and Jones (1977) that the forms pullata, rapax and vorax differ from the European russula by a longer tail; all have been assigned to the West European species; see Lekagul and McNeely (1977), among others. All three are now regarded as separate species (Jiang and Hoffmann, 2001).
