Saw this on FB today:

It’s called Mogera insularis insularis or 台灣鼴鼠.
Ok, I have never in my life seen that animal here in Taiwan, but I guess Robert Swinhoe did, that guy, give him a couple more years here, he’d have probably named every single animal here on this island…
There’s another type of mole called Mogera kanoana (named after Kano 鹿野).
