Crocidura fischeri Pagenstecher, 1885  

Pagenstecher, A. (1885) Die von Dr. G.A. Fischer auf der Reise in das Massai-Land gesammelten Sãugethiere. Jahrbuch der Hamburgischen Wissenschaftlichen Anstalten, 2: 34 [31–46].

Valid name: Crocidura fischeri Pagenstecher, 1885  

Holotype: ZMB 98251 View Materials , male, mounted skin (with a skull imitation inside), skull apparently lost. Collected by G.A. Fischer from “Nguruman, Massai-Land” [ Kenya] in 1883.

Comments: The type, formerly in the Hamburg Museum, was believed to be lost (Heim de Balsac & Meester 1977) but was rediscovered in the Berlin collection in 1983 (Hutterer 1986). The currently-missing skull had been figured by Pagenstecher (1885); how the skin was transferred to Berlin remains unknown.
