Graphiurus nagtglasii Jentink, 1888b: 38   .

COMMON NAME. — Nagtglas’s Dormouse; EWE: Kade.

MATERIAL EXAMINED. — Apesokubi ( Fig. 8 View FIG ) • 1 ♂; USNM 590101 View Materials ; 26.XI.1999; Sherman trap on a horizontal branch at 1.5 m height   2 ♀; USNM 590102 View Materials ; ZTNHC 972; 27.XI.1999; Sherman and Victor Rat traps   .

REMARK

All three specimens were caught in this dense traditionally protected forest at Apesokubi. There are 22 specimens from Leklebi Agbesia and one specimen from Odomi Jongo (2 miles E Nkwanta), all in the Volta Region in the USNM. Grubb et al. (1998) show two other localities in the Volta Region. The species has also been reported from several localities in the Togo Highlands ( Roche 1971; Robbins & Van der Straeten 1996).

CONSERVATION STATUS. — Graphiurus nagtglasii   is listed as “Least Concern” on the IUCN Red List, however, progressive forest loss will marginalize this arboreal species.
