SPECIES Crocidura tenuis

Common Name:Timor Shrew

Comments:Jenkins (1982:273) considered conspecificy of tenuis with fuliginosa but stated that present evidence is not sufficient. Hutterer (1993a) and Ruedi (1995) retained it as a separate species. In case of conspecificy with fuliginosa, tenuis would be the earliest name for the group.
