Abstract

The species of Crocidura occurring in southern China, northern Myanmar and Vietnam, are reviewed and defined based on morphology and multivariate analyses. Three new species are described: C. cranbrooki from northern Myanmar, C. annamitensis from the Annamite Mountains of Vietnam, and C. guy from the Viet Bac limestone region in northeastern Vietnam. Enhanced comparative descriptions, distribution, and remarks on taxonomy are provided for each of the other nine species previously reported from the region: C. fuliginosa, C. attenuata, C. sokolovi, C. vorax, C. rapax, C. indochinensis, C. wuchihensis, C. kegoensis, and C. zaitsevi.
