Kingdom Phylum Class Order Family
Animalia Chordata Mammalia Eulipotyphla Soricidae

Scientific Name: Crocidura hutanis Ruedi & Vogel, 1995
Common Name(s):
English Hutan Shrew
Taxonomic Notes: This species along is thought to be parapatric with respect to C. becarii. Altitudinal segregation exists between the two species, with this species occurring at lower elevations, but the extent of any overlap is not known (Ruedi 1995).

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Least Concern ver 3.1
Year Published: 2017
Date Assessed: 2016-12-23
Assessor(s): Lunde, D.P., Ruedas, A.R. & van Strien, N.J.
Reviewer(s): Amori, G.
Listed as Least Concern because, although it is poorly known, it has a relatively wide distribution, is tolerant at least of regenerating forest, has a presumed large population, and it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description:This species is only known from northern Sumatra, where it appears to e widespread. It might occur more widely across the island (Ruedi 1995).

Population:The abundance and population size of this species are not known.
Current Population Trend:Unknown
Additional data:
Population severely fragmented:No

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:This species is poorly known. It occurs at low elevations, and has been found, for example, in regenerating lowland rainforest at 300 m asl, in dense understory. It has been found at higher elevations in Gunung Leuser National Park. It can clearly tolerate some transformation of its forest habitat, but the level of its adaptability is not known.
Generation Length (years):1

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): C. hutanis is probably threatened to some extent by deforestation, though its adaptability to anthropogenic habitats is not well understood.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: This species occurs in Gunung Leuser National Park, and possibly some other protected areas. Further studies are needed into the distribution, abundance, reproduction and ecology of this species. In particular it is important to know whether or not it can survivve in transformed habitats, such as oil palm plantations, which are expending rapidly within its range.
