Crocidura martiensseni Neumann, 1900  

Neumann, O. (1900) Die von mir in den Jahren 1892 – 95 in Ost- und Central-Africa, speciell in den Massai-Lãndern und den Lãndern am Victoria Nyansa gesammelten und beobachteten Sãugethiere. Zoologische Jahrbücher, Abteilung für Systematik, Jena 13 (6): 544 [529–562].

Valid name: Crocidura olivieri (Lesson, 1827)   ssp. martiensseni Neumann, 1900  

Holotype: ZMB 8909, female, body in alcohol, skull extracted. Collected by Martienssen from Magrotto, Usambara [ Tanzania] on 0 4 December 1896.

Paratypes: ZMB 9411, male, body in alcohol, and for this ZMB 9412 (skull extracted); ZMB 9413, female, body in alcohol, and for this ZMB 9414 (skull extracted); ZMB 9415, female, body in alcohol, and for this ZMB 9416 (skull extracted); all paratypes collected by Martienssen from the same locality as the holotype, but at a later date (29 May 1897). An additional specimen in alcohol containing a skull inside (A 5487), collected by O. Neumann from Kilimanjaro Marangu in April 1895, probably also belongs to the type series.

Comments: Neumann (1900: 544) identified a specimen from the Usambara Mountains collected by Martienssen as the holotype.
