      Shrews are small mammals which look rather like mice. They were classified in the old Insectivora, but that is no longer used. Now they are classified in the family Soricidae, suborder Soricomorpha.[1] True shrews are not to be confused with West Indies shrews, treeshrews, otter shrews, or elephant shrews, which belong to different families or   Taxonomy and systematics. There are 98 described genera of Gracillariidae (see below). A complete checklist is available of all currently recognised species (de Prins and de Prins ). There are many undescribed species in the tropics but there is also an online catalogue of Afrotropical described species ; the South African fauna is quite well known..

SUBFAMILIES AND GENERA OF THE SORICIDAE By CHARLES A. KEPENNING ABSTRACT The shrews constitute a distinct and uniform but phylo- genetically diverse family in which five subfamilies, one sub­ divided into three tribes, can be recognized by consistent mor­ phologic differences.

These differences are traceable back Additional Physical Format: Online version: Repenning, Charles Albert, Subfamilies and genera of the Soricidae (OCoLC) Document Type: Subfamilies and genera of the Soricidae: Series title: Professional Paper: Series number: DOI: /pp Edition-Year Published: Language: ENGLISH: Publisher: U.S.

‘Poaceae – General Information’ is a modest section title but it is more than a mere preface to ‘Classification of the Poaceae Red-toothed shrews are so called because their teeth have a reddish appearance on account of a deposition of iron in the outer layer of enamel (Dötsch and Koenigswald, ), which may increase resistance to wear.
