dc.description.abstract "Chiropodomys is an Asian genus of arboreal mice that contains five species. One, C. karlkoopmani, is new and described here; it is represented by a specimen from North Pagai Island in the Mentawai Islands off the west coast of Sumatra. Another, C. major, is found in Sarawak and Sabah. A third, C. calamianensis, occurs in the Palawan area and is known by specimens from the islands of Balabac, Palawan, and Busuanga. The fourth, C. muroides, the smallest in body size within the genus, is represented by a few specimens from Sabah and northern Kalimantan and occurs together with C. major and C. gliroides, the fifth species. The latter has the most extensive geographic range of the five. It is found throughout Indochina (Assam, Burma, southern China, Laos, Vietnam, and Thailand), the Malay Peninsula, and on the Sunda Shelf (Sumatra, Borneo, Java, Bali, Nias and Tujuh islands, and the Natuna Islands). The morphological and geographic limits of the five species of Chiropodomys are outlined, some of the geographic variation is described, the available information about their natural histories is summarized, and their taxonomies are revised. Defining characteristics of each species within Chiropodomys is important in order to determine their place in the pattern of zoogeographic alliances among species of murid rodents which occur throughout the Far East, from Indochina to Australia"--P. 381. en_US

This item appears in the following Collection(s)

  • 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.
