Taxonomy news

1. A review of alstoni species group of mouse opossums, with a description of Marmosa adleri (if you’ve seen “Alston’s mouse opossum” in Panama, that was it).
2. A review of genus Makalata suggests that there are a lot more species than currently recognized (but I am a bit skeptical about the approach used). I have PDF.
3. A really cool paper describing 14 new shrew species from Sulawesi. I have PDF, too.
4. On a separate note, I compiled a checklist of mammals of the Indonesian part of New Guinea (with brief distribution and identification info), and will be happy to share if anyone needs it.
