ABSTRACT Two new species of of Bunomys are described, B. karokophilus and B. torajae, both from the west-central mountain region of central Sulawesi. The descriptions are presented within the context of a systematic review of Bunomys in which are provided characteristics of the genus and species (external form, secondary sexual traits, spermatozoa, stomach morphology, skull, dentition, chromosomes); diagnoses, geographic and elevational distributions; sympatric, syntopic, and parapatric… Expand
Molecular and morphological systematics of the Bunomys division (Rodentia: Muridae), an endemic radiation on Sulawesi
TLDR
A five‐locus phylogeny and linear cranial morphology is combined to better understand the taxonomy and local scales of endemism within the Bunomys division on Sulawesi and resurrected Frateromys, a genus under which B. fratrorum was once placed, and returning Paruromys dominator to Taeromys. Expand
A new genus and species of omnivorous rodent (Muridae: Murinae) from Sulawesi, nested within a clade of endemic carnivores
TLDR
A new genus and species of rodent from the west-central region of Sulawesi Island, Indonesia that feeds on both plant and animal matter, and may represent a rare evolutionary reversal of traits associated with a carnivorous diet in murids. Expand
A new species of Margaretamys (Rodentia: Muridae: Murinae: Rattini) from Pegunungan Mekongga, southeastern Sulawesi, Indonesia
Margaretamys christinae n. sp. is described from an adult male collected in tropical lower montane rain forest in Pegunungan Mekongga, the most extensive mountainous region on the southeasternExpand
A new species of Halmaheramys (Rodentia: Muridae) from Bisa and Obi Islands (North Maluku Province, Indonesia)
TLDR
A new species of murine rodent from a skull collected on Bisa Island and 3 specimens from Obi Island, North Maluku Province, Indonesia is described, characterized by its combination of large size; short tail with large scales; spiny, coarse, dark dorsal pelage with long black guard hairs; and a dark gray ventral pelage that contrasts slightly with the dorsum. Expand
Morphological and Geographic Definitions of the Sulawesian Shrew Rats Echiothrix leucura and E. centrosa (Muridae, Murinae), and Description of a New Species of Sucking Louse (Phthiraptera: Anoplura)
TLDR
The present report documents morphological and distributional limits of species in Echiothrix, places one of those species in an ecological and parasitological landscape and analyses of morphometric traits derived primarily from cranial and dental measurements document the presence of two species. Expand
Characterisation of the endemic Sulawesi Lenomys meyeri (Muridae, Murinae) and the description of a new species of Lenomys
TLDR
In 1969, DJ Mulvaney sent me a batch of subfossils excavated by him and his colleagues from caves and rock-shelters in the Makassar region of Sulawesi, and among them are samples from a cave containing examples of Lenomys meyeri, a large-bodied rat endemic to Sulaw Indonesian, and a single right dentary with an intact molar row that is from a smaller-bodied Lenoms, which represents a new species. Expand
A Hog-Nosed Shrew Rat (Rodentia: Muridae) from Sulawesi Island, Indonesia
TLDR
Bayesian and likelihood analyses of DNA sequences concatenated from 5 unlinked loci infer the new shrew rat as sister to a clade consisting of Melasmothrix, Paucidentomys, and Echiothsrix, suggesting that Sulawesi shrew rats represent aClade. Expand
NEW RECORDS OF TWO RARELY ENCOUNTERED, ENDEMIC RATS (RODENTIA: MURIDAE: MURINAE) FROM GUNUNG GANDANGDEWATA, WEST SULAWESI PROVINCE
We collected specimens of Sommer’s Sulawesi shrew-rat, Sommeromys macrorhinos, at three sites (1600, 2200, and 2600 m) and the Sulawesi small-bodied shrew-rat, Crunomys celebensis, at one siteExpand
A JOURNAL ON ZOOLOGY OF THE INDO-AUSTRALIAN ARCHIPELAGO
We collected specimens of Sommer’s Sulawesi shrew-rat, Sommeromys macrorhinos, at three sites (1600, 2200, and 2600 m) and the Sulawesi small-bodied shrew-rat, Crunomys celebensis, at one site (1600Expand
Repeated evolution of carnivory among Indo‐Australian rodents
TLDR
A comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of carnivorous murids of the IAA demonstrates that carnivory evolved independently four times after overwater colonization, including in situ origins on the Philippines, Sulawesi, and Sahul. Expand

Taxonomic revision of Bolivian Juscelinomys (Rodentia, Cricetidae) with notes on morphology and ecology
TLDR
It is concluded that the segregation of Juscelinomys into two Bolivian species cannot be justified, so the genus is revised to include only two named taxa: J. huanchacae and J. candango Moojen. Expand
Review of the Hylomyscus denniae complex (Rodentia: Muridae) in Tanzania, with a description of a new species
ABSTRACT Based on morphological and morphometric comparisons, a new species of Hylomyscus, H. arcimontensis (Muridae: Murinae), is identified from Mount Rungwe and the Eastern Arc Mountains ofExpand
Taxonomic revision of shrews of the genus Crocidura from the Sunda Shelf and Sulawesi with description of two new species (Mammalia: Soricidae)
TLDR
The skulls of 387 shrews of the genus Crocidura sampled in peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo, Java and Sulawesi were submitted to principal component and stepwise discriminant analyses, helping to delineate morphological taxa in this species-rich genus of mammals. Expand
Archboldomys (Muridae: Murinae) Reconsidered: A New Genus and Three New Species of Shrew Mice from Luzon Island, Philippines
TLDR
Reevaluation of the presumed morphological synapomorphies among these shrew mice, together with analyses of karyological and gene-sequence data, support the presence of Soricomys, new genus, and their phylogenetic relationships, biogeography, and conservation are discussed. Expand
A new species of Margaretamys (Rodentia: Muridae: Murinae: Rattini) from Pegunungan Mekongga, southeastern Sulawesi, Indonesia
Margaretamys christinae n. sp. is described from an adult male collected in tropical lower montane rain forest in Pegunungan Mekongga, the most extensive mountainous region on the southeasternExpand
Sulawesi Rodents: Description of a New Genus and Species of Murinae (Muridae, Rodentia) and Its Parasitic New Species of Sucking Louse (Insecta, Anoplura)
TLDR
The rostral configuration of Sommeromys is unlike the architecture found in any other of the more than 1300 species in the entire Muridae, and has a derived cephalic arterial circulation, a pattern otherwise found only in Crunomys celebensis among Sulawesian murines. Expand
Systematic Review of Endemic Sulawesi Squirrels (Rodentia, Sciuridae), with Descriptions of New Species of Associated Sucking Lice (Insecta, Anoplura), and Phylogenetic and Zoogeographic Assessments of Sciurid Lice
Abstract Analyses of fur color patterns, morphometric data derived from external, cranial, and dental dimensions, and distributions of collection sites for voucher specimens form the basis for aExpand
Systematic studies of Oryzomyine rodents (Muridae, Sigmodontinae): diagnoses and distributions of species formerly assigned to Oryzomys 'capito'
TLDR
This study considers Fischer’s (1814) Mus megacephalus to be valid and available, designate a neotype to bear the name, and reinstate it as a senior synonym of capito Olfers (1818). Expand
The flea genus Sigmactenus (Siphonaptera: Leptopsyllidae): three new taxa from Sulawesi, updated identification key, and distribution map for all known species and subspecies.
TLDR
One new species and two new subspecies of fleas are described and it is hypothesized that Sigmactenus first colonized Sulawesi as an ectoparasite of ancestral Maxomys, or perhaps Rattus, as these murines dispersed from southeast Asia to Sulaw Indonesia. Expand
