SPECIES Chimarrogale phaeura

Author:Thomas, 1898.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 7, 2: 246.
Common Name:Bornean Water Shrew
Type Locality:Malaysia, Sabah, "Saiap, Mount Kina Balu".
Distribution:Streams in tropical forest of island of Borneo (Malaysia and Indonesia).

Comments:Medway (1977) considered phaeura as a subspecies of himalayica but Corbet (1978c) and Jones and Mumford (1971) maintained styani and phaeura as separate species. Ellerman and Morrison-Scott (1966:87) included sumatrana in this species, but Gureev (1979:458) listed it as a distinct species, a view followed by Hutterer (1993a).
