Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Least Concern ver 3.1
Year Published: 2008
Date Assessed: 2008-06-30
Assessor(s): Lunde, D., Ruedas, L. & van Strien, N.J.
Reviewer(s): Amori, G. (Small Nonvolant Mammal Red List Authority) & Stuart, S.N. (Global Mammal Assessment Team)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its relatively wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description:The species range covers the islands of Java and Bali, in Indonesia (Hutterer 2005). Among other places, it has been recorded from: Tijbodas, in west Java (Jentink 1890) at altitudes up to 1,500 m (Ruedi 1995) asl; Mount Pangerango at an altitude of 1,000 m asl (Jentink 1890); and Poedjon, in east Java, at an altitude of 1,200 m (Sody 1936). Kitchener et al. (1994) recorded specimens from Bali.
