Post-Pleistocene evolution of Bornean shrews Crocidura foetida (Mammalia, Soricidae)
Fossil mandibles of the Bornean shrew Crocidura foetida recovered from excavations at the west mouth of Niah cave, Sarawak, Malaysia, show that the late Pleistocene population at this lowland location was comparable in size with the large subspecies Crocidura foetida doriae, presently occurring at inland, upland locations.
