|Scientific Name:||Crocidura douceti Heim de Balsac, 1957|
|Taxonomic Notes:||The status of this species needs confirmation; there is uncertainty around its taxonomic limits. More taxonomic work is required for the species.|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||Gerrie, R. & Kennerley, R.|
This species is assessed as Least Concern because it has a fairly large extent of occurrence (EOO of approximately 105,952 km²), which might be even greater if records in Nigeria and Ghana are confirmed, and is known to exist in both forest and degraded areas.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
This species is found in the forest-savanna border of Guinea, Côte d’Ivoire, and possibly Nigeria. The Nigerian records, which are based on specimens recovered from owl pellets, might be mis-identifications (R. Hutterer pers. comm). There is a possible record of the species in the Mamang River Forest Reserve in Ghana (Barrière et al. 2009).
