dc.description.abstract "Crunomys contains four species native to the Philippine Islands and Sulawesi (Celebes). Crunomys fallax is from Luzon; C. rabori, new species, occurs on Leyte; C. melanius lives on Mindanao; and C. celebensis, new species, is native to middle altitudes in mountainous Central Sulawesi. The species are described and contrasted with one another. Crunomys is related to Archboldomys, new genus and species, a small-bodied shrew rat from southeastern Luzon. That rat is described, compared with species of Crunomys, then contrasted with the three species of small-bodied shrew rats endemic to Central Sulawesi: Melasmothrix naso, Tateomys rhinogradoides, and T. macrocercus, new species. Relationships among the four genera are discussed. Insular and altitudidinal distributions are also presented as well as some data on habitats and habits"--P. 3. en_US

  • Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History
    The Bulletin, published continuously since 1881, consists of longer monographic volumes in the field of natural sciences relating to zoology, paleontology, and geology. Current numbers are published at irregular intervals. The Bulletin was originally a place to publish short papers, while longer works appeared in the Memoirs. However, in the 1920s, the Memoirs ceased and the Bulletin series began publishing longer papers. A new series, the Novitates , published short papers describing new forms.
