REMARK

Initially identified as Crocidura cf. douceti Heim de Balsac, 1958   , this tiny shrew has been re-assigned to Crocidura eburnea   , which has only recently been elevated from a synonym of C. obscurior ( Hutterer 2005)   to species level ( Jacquet et al. 2014). This is the first record of C. cf. eburnea   from the Volta Region and since the Volta River is considered the eastern boundary of the C. obscurior   complex ( Jacquet et al. 2014), this possible range extension awaits further study.

CONSERVATION STATUS. — Crocidura eburnea   was included in the IUCN Red List in 2019 and assessed as “Least Concern”.
