SPECIES Crocidura tanakae

Author:Kuroda, 1938.
Citation:A list of the Japanese mammals: 81.
Common Name:Taiwanese Gray Shrew
Type Locality:C Taiwan, Taichusiu, Horigai, Shohosha.
Distribution:Taiwan, from sea level up to 2,200 m (Fang et al., 1997).
Comments:Originally described as a species, C. tanakae was subsequently sunk into synonymy of C. attenuata (Fang et al., 1997). Differences in the karyotype (Motokawa et al., 1997, 2001b) led to a renewed recognition of the species (Fang and Lee, 2002).
