GENUS Nectogale

Author:Milne-Edwards, 1870.
Citation:C.R. Acad. Sci. Paris, 70: 341.
Type Species:Nectogale elegans Milne-Edwards, 1870.
Comments:For placement in Soricinae see Vogel and Besancon (1979); formerly in tribe Neomyini; see Repenning (1967:45). Gureev (1971:226) placed Nectogale in a subtribe Nectogalina, but all authors prior to McKenna and Bell (1997) overlooked the fact that Nectogalini Anderson, 1879 was available.
