Suncus from Dhofar (Oman)

On November 3, 2023 we caught a Suncus at the end of Wadi Darbat (Dhofar, Oman). It was undoubtedly a Suncus but much larger than the Etruscus that I regularly catch and raise in the south of France and significantly smaller than the Murinus introduced to the coasts of the Arabian Peninsula. Unfortunately, the specimen was accidentally released by one of us before photos and DNA samples were taken.

Head+Body 65mm , Tail 38mm

Thank you if you have any information about Suncus from the southern Arabian Peninsula that could help us.
