Author:Thomas, 1913.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. ?? [check], 11: 217.
Common Name:Lesser Taiwanese Shrew
Type Locality:Central Taiwan, Mt. Arizan, 8,000 ft. (2438 m).

Comments:Formerly included as a synonym in Episoriculus fumidus (Hoffmann, 1984), but Yu (1994) and Motokawa et al. (1997b, 1998) re-definied C. sodalis and described its characteristical karyotype (2n = 44, FN = 88). Kuroda (1935) already correctly distinguished between Chodsigoa sodalis and Episoriculus fumidus.
