Crocidura olivieri ( Lesson, 1827)  

Sorex olivieri Lesson, 1827: 121   .

COMMON NAME. — African Giant White-toothed Shrew, Olivier’s Shrew.

MATERIAL EXAMINED. — Apesokubi • 1 ♀; Sherman trap in forest; ZFMK 2003.1089 View Materials . Liati Wote (Tagbo Falls)   1?; Sherman trap between buttress roots in forest; ZFMK 2003.1090 View Materials   .

REMARK

This species was previously known from several localities in the Volta Region ( Grubb et al. 1998). In their Kyabobo expedition report Hurst et al. (1995) mention several individuals of this large shrew (as C. flavescens   ) from KRNP, but we did not encounter it there. Our specimen from Liati Wote (ZFMK 2003.1090) was included in a recent phylogeographic study of C. olivieri ( Jacquet et al. 2015)   and grouped with their Clade IIB with Dahomey Gap specimens from Togo and Benin.

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