Traditionally, only four extant species were recognized in the family Tragulidae. In 2004, "T. nigricans" and "T. versicolor" were split from "T. napu", and "T. kanchil", and "T. williamsoni" was split from "T. javanicus". In 2005, "M. indica" and "M.

The endemic status of two Sri Lankan shrews has undergone changes as they have been reported in India recently. The Kelaart's long-clawed shrew ("Feroculus feroculus") and the Sri Lanka highland shrew ("Suncus montanus") were recorded from southern India. At the same time taxonomic revisions have indicated that the flame-striped jungle squirrel ("Funambulus layardi"), the red slender loris ("Loris tardigradus") and two species of mouse deer, "Moschiola meminna" and "M.
" are endemic to Sri Lanka. That leaves the number of endemic mammals in Sri Lanka at 16. Meanwhile, a group of researchers have described a new shrew species "Crocidura hikmiya" from the Sinharaja Forest Reserve in 2007. The discovery leads to increase the ultimate number of endemics to 21 at present.
