Threatened species of Uropsilus


Almost nothing is known about the ecology of these species. Habitat destruction and intensive agriculture are probably the principal threats to Uropsilus.


Four species are recognised within Uropsilus (sub-family Uropsilinae) two of which, U. investigator and U. soricipes, are considered "Endangered" by the IUCN Red List.

All four species are restricted to southern China and adjacent parts of Myanmar. Almost nothing is known about their ecology.
