The Angolan marsh rat (Dasymys
) is a species of rodent in the family Muridae.
The nominate form, "M. n.
", was originally described in 1800 by French ornithologist François Marie Daudin in "Traite elementaire et complet d'Ornithologie, ou Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux" as "Otus
". The species name, "
", makes reference to its bare legs and toes which are unusual among "Megascops" species. The recognized subspecies, "M. n. newtoni", was described in 1860 by Lawrence in the "Annals of the Lyceum of Natural History" and is considered extinct. Furthermore, the validity of this subspecies has been questioned.
is a species of plant in the Malpighiaceae family. It is found in Argentina and Bolivia. It is threatened by habitat loss from agricultural activities.
is a species of ant in the genus "Iridomyrmex". Described by Heterick and Shattuck in 2011, the workers of the species are diurnal foragers, and have only been recorded in New South Wales.
The Puerto Rican screech owl ("Megascops
") or Múcaro (Spanish via Taino) is a nocturnal endemic owl of the archipelago of Puerto Rico belonging to the "Megascops" genus of the family Strigidae. The subspecies, "M. n . newtoni", which was endemic to the Virgin Islands, was locally referred to as the cuckoo bird.
The Malayan weasel ("Mustela
") is a species of weasel. It lives in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand: on the islands of Sumatra and Borneo and the southern half of the Malay Peninsula. It is rated "Least Concern" by the IUCN Red List. Malayan weasels have a body length of and a tail length of . The body is reddish-brown to grayish-white. The head is a much lighter color than the rest of the body. There is no hair on the soles of the feet around the pads.
The generic name "Cryptoprocta" refers to how the animal's anus is hidden by its anal pouch, from the Ancient Greek words "crypto-" "hidden", and "procta" "anus". The species name "ferox" is the Latin adjective "fierce" or "wild". Its common name is spelled fossa in English or "fosa" in Malagasy, the Austronesian language from which it was taken, but some authors have adopted the Malagasy spelling in English. The word is similar to "posa" (meaning "cat") in the Iban language (another Austronesian language) from Borneo, and both terms may derive from trade languages from the 1600s. However, an alternative etymology suggests a link to another word that comes from Malay: "pusa" refers to the Malayan weasel ("Mustela
"). The Malay word "pusa" could have become "posa" for cats in Borneo, while in Madagascar the word could have become "fosa" to refer to the fossa.
The variety of plant life is also habitat for a great variety of birds and mammals. There are some 326 species of birds in Kinabalu Park, including the spectacular rhinoceros hornbill, mountain serpent-eagle, Dulit frogmouth, eyebrowed jungle flycatcher, and bare-headed laughingthrush. Twenty-four birds are mainly found on the mountain. The mountain is home to some 100 mammalian species mostly living high in the trees, including one of the four great apes, the orangutan (though sightings of these are uncommon; estimates of its numbers in the park range from 25 to 120). Other mammals include three kinds of deer, the Malayan weasel "(Mustela
)", oriental small-clawed otter "(Aonyx cinerea)", and leopard cat "(Felis bengalensis)". Endemic mammals include the black shrew "(Suncus ater)" and Bornean ferret-badger "(Melogale everetti)".
The rainforests on volcanic substrate are transition zones between wet and dry forests in the coastal valleys, which lie on alluvial and sandy substratum, similar to those found in the lowlands in the NEC; and lower montane wet forests and rainforests on volcanic substrate, such as those in El Yunque National Forest. They have suffered great clearing in Puerto Rico, making it difficult to find natural stands. Endemic species like the Puerto Rican screech owl ("Megascops
") regularly inhabit this vegetation association . This bird has not been documented within the NEC, so that the restoration of this ecosystem might provide an opportunity to reintroduce this and other species in the area, thereby enhancing connectivity between coastal and mountainous region east of the island.
