Abstract The broad-clawed shrews (Soricomorpha: Soricidae: Cryptotis) encompass a clade of 5 species—Cryptotis alticolus (Merriam), C. goldmani (Merriam), C. goodwini Jackson, C. griseoventris Jackson, and C. peregrinus (Merriam)—that is known collectively as the Cryptotis goldmani group and is characterized by broadened forefeet, elongated and broadened fore claws, and broadened humeri. These shrews are distributed in highland regions from central Mexico to Honduras. Two broad-clawed shrews, C… 
Patterns of morphological variation amongst semifossorial shrews in the highlands of Guatemala, with the description of a new species (Mammalia, Soricomorpha, Soricidae)
TLDR
A new species of Cryptotis goldmani, a small-eared shrew endemic to highland forests in the Sierra de los Cuchumatanes of western Guatemala, is described and its morphology is characterized.
Morphological Variation among Broad-Clawed Shrews (Mammalia: Eulipotyphla: Soricidae: Cryptotis Pomel, 1848) from Highlands of Western Honduras, with Descriptions of Three New Cryptic Species
TLDR
Morphological and morphometrical analyses of variation in the skull and postcranial skeleton within and among the three Honduran populations of C. goodwini reveal that each represents a distinct species of broad-clawed shrew.
A new species of small-eared shrew of the genus Cryptotis (Mammalia, Eulipotyphla, Soricidae) from the northernmost Peruvian Andes.
TLDR
A new species of Cryptotis from the páramo and montane forests of the Tabaconas Namballe National Sanctuary near the Ecuadorian border is described, distinguished from other South American shrews by a unique set of morphological characters, including large body size, comparatively short tail, simple ectoloph of M3, and large PM4 post protocrista.
A new species of small-eared shrew (Mammalia, Eulipotyphla, Cryptotis) from the Lacandona rain forest, Mexico
Abstract The diversity and distribution of mammals in the American tropics remain incompletely known. We describe a new species of small-eared shrew (Soricidae, Cryptotis) from the Lacandona rain
First record of shrews (Eulipotyphla, Soricidae) in the Sierra de Otontepec, an isolated mountain in Veracruz, Mexico
TLDR
The first record of small-eared shrews (Soricidae, Cryptotis) from the Sierra de Otontepec, Mexico is presented, offering relevant information that could be used to better understand the evolution and biogeographic history of this species group and its habitat.
Molecular systematics and biodiversity of the Cryptotis mexicanus group (Eulipotyphla: Soricidae): two new species from Honduras supported
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analyses confirm the distinctiveness of two newly described species from isolated highlands of western Honduras and illustrate their relationship with other species formerly considered part of a widespread C. mexicanus group.
Molecular systematics of small-eared shrews (Soricomorpha, Mammalia) within Cryptotis mexicanus species group from Mesoamérica
TLDR
It is confirmed that Cryptotis genus consists of different lineages that represent species groups, and a detailed analysis suggests that C. magnus is a species that shares an evolutionary history with the C. mexicanus species group because it is imbedded within this group.
Noteworthy records of an endemic shrew from Mexico (Mammalia, Soricomorpha, Cryptotis griseoventris), with comments on taxonomy
TLDR
The humerus, a useful structure to delimit species and reconstruct phylogenetic relationships within the genus Cryptotis, is described and corroborates its taxonomic relatedness with the cryptotis goldmani species group and yields a more comprehensive knowledge of the ecology and evolution within this group.
UNA NUEVA ESPECIE DE MUSARAÑA DEL GÉNERO Cryptotis (SORICOMORPHA: SORICIDAE) DE LA SERRANÍA DEL LITORAL EN EL NORTE DE VENEZUELA
TLDR
This population represents the second species of Cryptotis with non-Andean distribution in South America, and increases to five the number of endemic mammals of the Cordillera de la Costa, Venezuelan ecoregion that currently faces serious problems of conservation by habitat loss.
SMALL MAMMAL COMMUNITIES IN THE SIERRA DE LOS CUCHUMATANES, HUEHUETENANGO, GUATEMALA
Very little is known concerning small mammal ecology and their distribution in the highlands of Guatemala. Small mammals were trapped from five different cloud forests in the Sierra de los

At the foot of the shrew: manus morphology distinguishes closely-related Cryptotis goodwini and Cryptotis griseoventris (Mammalia: Soricidae) in Central America
TLDR
Univariate, bivariate, and multivariate analyses indicate that fore foot characters are more conservative within species of the C. mexicana group than are cranio-mandibular characters, and patterns of evolution of Fore foot characters that superficially appear to be linear gradations are actually more complex, illustrating individual evolutionary trajectories.
Fossil Shrews from Honduras and Their Significance for Late Glacial Evolution in Body Size (Mammalia: Soricidae: Cryptotis)
TLDR
The study of three species of small-eared shrews from McGrew Cave indicates that North American shrews have not all been static in size through time, as suggested by some previous work with fossil soricids.
Taxonomy and evolutionary relationships of Phillips' small-eared-shrew, Cryptotis phillipsii (Schaldach, 1966), from Oaxaca, Mexico (Mammalia: Insectivora: Soricidae)
TLDR
Analysis of museum specimens from these two populations of a small-eared shrew of the Cryptotis mexicana-group indicates that they are neither conspecific nor even sister taxa, and it is demonstrated that C. phillipsii is the most primitive member of the C. mexico-group, whereas, C. peregrina is one of the more derived members of the group.
Skeletal morphology of the forefoot in shrews (Mammalia: Soricidae) of the genus Cryptotis, as revealed by digital X‐rays
TLDR
A digital X‐ray system was used to extract images of the forefoot skeleton from 101 dried skins of small‐eared shrews, and a number of specific forefoot characters were defined that were subsequently used to hypothesize evolutionary relationships among the taxa using the exhaustive search option in PAUP, a computer program for phylogenetic analysis.
Diet of the cloud forest shrew Cryptotis meridensis (Insectívora: Soricidae) in the Venezuelan Andes
TLDR
The preferences for soil invertebrates found in this study confirmed the prediction that C. meridensis uses mostly a subterranean foraging mode in accord with its morphological adaptations similar to other shrews in temperate habitats.
Food niche overlap and ecological separation in a multi‐species community of shrews in the Siberian taiga
An investigation of the feeding habits and prey availability in a community of seven species of shrew (Insectivora: Soricidae) inhabiting the taiga of Central Siberia was carried out with the aim of
Food niche overlap and ecological separation amongst six species of coexisting forest shrews (Insectivora: Soricidae) in the Russian Far East
TLDR
Investigation of the feeding habits and foraging modes of six species of shrew coexisting in the forests of the Russian Far East confirms that body size has an important role in effecting ecological separation in multi-species communities where a high degree of morphological and ecological similarity occurs between members.
