SPECIES Blarinella wardi

Author:Thomas, 1915.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 8, 15: 336.
Common Name:Burmese Short-tailed Shrew
Type Locality:Burma, "Hpimaw, Upper Burma, about 26N., 9835'E. Alt. 8000' [2400 m]."
Distribution:N Burma and NW Yunnan (China).
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (nt).
Comments:Included in quadraticauda by Allen (1938), Ellerman and Morrison-Scott (1951) and subsequent authors, but the species has a much smaller and narrower skull (see measurements in Hoffmann, 1987:134) and was therefore regarded as distinct (Hutterer, 1993a). These differences were also recognized by Corbet (1978c:26) and Lunde et al. (2003b). Revised by Jiang et al. (2003).
