Blurb/Shorttext:
Sommer's Sulawesi Rat is a recently described species of rodent (family Muridae, subfamily Murinae) from Sulawesi. It is only species of genus Sommeromys. The species was described by Musser & Durden (2002). S. macrorhinos is known from only one specimen, AMNH 226956 (American Museum of Natural History, catalogue number 226956). This specimen was caught at 2400 m on Gunung Tokala, a mountain between the Rampi and Seko valleys in the province of Sulawesi Tengah, in primary mossy forest which was somewhat disturbed by human activities. The describers expected that the genus also occurs in other high montane forests of Sulawesi. On the first of August, 1973, the NAMRU team that would discover S. macrorhinos reached Gunung Tokala. Despite a heavy, cold rain, someone set some Victor rat traps and found one specimen each of Tateomys rhinogradoides and S. macrorhinos the following day. On the specimen of S. macrorhinos, a louse was found, which was also a new species, Hoplopleura sommeri. Sommer's Sulawesi Rat was named after Helmut G. Sommer, Scientific Technician at the American Museum of Natural History.
