REMARK

A grassland and farmbush species that also occurs along roads in the forest. There are 43 additional Lemniscomys striatus   from the Volta Region at the USNM, collected by the African Mammal Project at Leklebi Agbesia and Odomi Jongo (2 miles E Nkwanta). Hurst et al. (1995) also caught four individuals in riparian forest and tree savanna at KRNP. Although not genetically tested our Lemniscomys striatus   east of the Volta River should belong to what Nicolas et al. (2008) called Clade III.

CONSERVATION STATUS. — Lemniscomys striatus   is listed as “Least Concern” on the IUCN Red List.
