Taxonomy And Historical Zoogeography Of The Red Squirrel, Paraxerus palliatus (peters, 1852). In the Southern african subregion (rodentia: sciuridae)




The inter- and intraspecific classification of the red squirrel, Paraxerus palliatus (Peters, 1852) is reviewed. Paraxerus Forsyth Major, 1893, is considered a valid genus with two species, P. cepapi (A. Smith, 1836) and P. palliatus, within the Southern African subregion. P. pa/liatus is represented by four subspecies, 1) P. p, omatus (Gray, 1864), 2) P. p. bridgemani Dollman, 1914, with tongensis Roberts, 1931, and auriventris Roberts, 1926, as synonyms; 3) P. p. swynnertoni (Wroughton, 1908), and 4) P. p, sponsus (Thomas & Wroughton, 1908).
