Abstract

Microsciurus santanderensis (Hernandez-Camacho, 1957) is a sciurid commonly called the Santander dwarf squirrel. M. santanderensis is a small tree squirrel with orange and black mixed fur and is 1 of 4 species in the genus Microsciurus. Endemic to Colombia, South America, in forests at elevations up to 3,800 m, M. santanderensis is listed as " Data Deficient " by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources, and more research is needed to determine its conservation needs.
