Crocidura manni Peters, 1878 

Peters, W.C.H. (1878) Mitteilung über eine neue Spitzmaus aus Westafrika. Sitzungsberichte der naturforschenden Freunde zu Berlin, 1878: 19 [19–20].

Va li d n a me: Crocidura olivieri (Lesson, 1827)  ssp. manni Peters, 1878 

Paralectotypes: ZMB 5253, female, body in alcohol, skull extracted; ZMB 5254, juvenile in alcohol. Both specimens were collected by Mann from Lagos, Nigeria and given to the ZMB by F. Krauss (Stuttgart). Comments: Other elements of the type series are located in the SMNS (Stuttgart). Peters (1878) described three females, one of which was gravid with three embryos, given to him by Krauss of the Stuttgart Museum.

Presumably one of the females and a neonate remained in Berlin. Hutterer and Happold (1983: 42) designated the specimen SMNS 1646 a as lectotype.
