Abstract

The rare genus Diomys is recorded from Nepal for the first time. Ecological notes and histograms displaying measurements of all the specimens in the apparently unique collection of this rodent in the British Museum (Natural History) are given. Also listed are museum specimens of Crocidura attenuata, Sorex minutus and Suncus etruscus which extend the known range of each of these species. Fleas collected from Diomys crumpi and Crocidura attenuata are also recorded.
