Two new mammal species found in Huangshan, Anhui Province

The species of q,” recently discovered by researchers in Huangshan Scenic Area of Anhui Province, has been confirmed as a new species of two mammals. The “Yellow Mountain Scenic Area Wildlife Observation Cooperation Project” jointly carried out by the Huangshan Scenic Area Garden Bureau and the Nanjing Institute of Environmental Science of the Ministry of Ecological Environment and Anhui University has recently made significant progress in the study of the classification of the genus.

Through integrated morphology and systematic development, the project team identified two new mammalian species, named “Crociduraanhuiensis” and “Yellow Mountain Slug” collected in the Fuxi Monkey Valley in Huangshan Scenic Area. (Crocidurasdensis).

The findings were published in the English edition of the Journal of Animal Classification, Zoological Systems, 2019, and The 1st issue of 2020, sponsored by the Institute of Zoology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

According to the researchers, the python is the autered species of the Laua-eating Insect-Eater, which is distributed in Asia, Europe and Africa, and most species are concentrated in tropical and subtropical regions, inhabiting forests, plains, hills and mountains, mainly for soil insects, as well as some plant flowers, fruits and seeds. The dragonfly is shaped like a mouse, and contains three types of large, medium and small.

Anhui moth: small eyes, round ears, back fur gray brown black, belly light on the back; tail and fur color is similar, length is only 76% long head body length, tail nearly half bare, nearly half with sparse short hair, near the tail fur gradually shortened, tail tip prominent brush-like hair; limbs half-naked, pink, ankle slower. The skull is long and narrow, the forehead bone is developed for the first pair of front teeth, and the ridge of the human word is more obvious. The sample (6) weighs 10.52-13.51g, the head is 60.88-78.10mm long, the tail length is 48.34-59.24mm, the front foot length is 9.20-9.87, the rear foot length is 13.52-14.83mm, the ear length is 7.74-9.24mm, the total length is 20.222.28.28.28.28.28.28.

Huangshan small dragonfly: small head, long nose; should grow to the bottom of the ear; eyes small; ear round, ear shell has obvious bottom hair; fur gray-brown, slightly blackback; limbs slim, front and back foot five fingers (toe), feet with small and meaty protrusions, back, toe pink, semi-naked, ankle thinning brown hair; tail length length of 76%, The color is similar to the fur, almost exposed, with very little lengthy hair. The skull is long and flat, no bow, the first pair of front teeth of the forehead bone is curved, developed, the human word ridge is obvious. Samples (5) weigh 4.35-7.77g, head length 50.45-61.97mm, tail length 39.64-45.03mm, front foot length 6.99-8.33mm, rear foot length 11.84-13.82mm, ear length 7.86-8.70mm, skull length 16.88-90.97-90.97.

The researchers believe that the two new species found in the Huangshan scenic area are medium-sized slugs. The discovery of two new species, Anhui And Huangshan, has further enriched the biodiversity of mammals, especially animals, in the Huangshan Scenic Area, and filled the gap in the study of the sage genus in the scenic area.
