Abstract: During 1973-1974, there were two mammal surveys had been made in the Gaoligong mountains, the most western flank of the Hengduan Mountains in the western frontier of Yunnan. Altogether the set consists of about 1,356 specimens belonging 149 species with 28 subspecies. After critically checked, numerous species and subspecies were found to be new to science. In the following lines are the diagnoses of the four subspecies of them. 1. Paguma larvata chichingensis Wang, subsp. nov.Holotype:No. 73646,1 male(ad.), collected from Chiching(七箐, alt.2,000 m) of Gaoligong mountains, Gongshan Xian, northwestern Yunnan, on December 11, 1973.Paratypes:No. 73721, 1 male(ad.), collected from Pula(普拉, ait. 1,600 m), near the holotype locality, on June 22, 1973, No.73838, 1 female(subad.), collected from the same locality as the holotype, on December 17, 1973.All the type specimens are deposited in the Kunming Institute of Zoology, Academia Sinica.Diagnosis; Most resembling P. L. intredents, but with smaller skull and darker colour. The skull is about 117 mm. The mask and patches of the face, head and neck are more conspicuous than the latter in all seasons. The colour of the upper surface is dusky brown with darker oliveceous instead of ochraceous. The terminal portion of the tail has a white cluster of hairs.2. Petaurista petaurista nigra Wang, subsp.nov.Holotype.No.73744, 1 male(ad.), collected from Chiching (alt.1,900m) of Gaoligong mountains, Gongshan Xian, northwertern Yunnan, on December 12, 1973.Paratype: 1 female(ad.), collected from the same locality and date as the holotype.Specimens examined; 15 skins collected from Nu Jiang Valley(including Gongshan Xian 7; Bijiang xian 2; Lushui xian 2) and Lancang Jiang valley (Weixi 3).Diagnosis: Most resembling P.p. yunanensis, but with darker colour and more broad region of the interobital breadth.The upper surface is dark blackish-chestnus, the rump densely specked with white like frost appearance. The back of the ear is also dark blackish-chestnut.The interobital breadth is more breadCover 18.2 mm) than the latter.3. Callosciurus erythraeus gongshanensis Wang, subsp. nov. Holotype: No.73952, 1 male(ad.), collected from Jiulida(九里达, alt.1,600m)(eastern flank of Gaoligong mountains), Gongshan Xian, northwestern Yunnan, on December 30, 1973.Paratypes: No.74736,1 male(ad.), collected from Chiching(alt. 1.850 m), Gongshan, northwestern Yunnan, on december 12, 1973;No. 73791, 1 female (ad.), collected from the same locality and date as the holotype. Specimens examined: Gongshan Xian(2 skins); Bachun(八村), Bijang Xian(l male).Diagnosis: The colour is the darkest of all subspecies in our country. The upper surface is dark brownish-olivaceous. The ears are strong ochraceous-rusty. Under parts from throat to the base of the tail and inner side of limbs are deep purple-chestnut without any middle stripe. The end of the tail(about one third of the tail) is black with rufous end of hairs. Size is middle, the greatest length of skull is 52-54 mm.4. Micromys minutus pianmaensis Peng, subsp. nov.Holotype: No.74063, 1 female(ad.), collected from Pianma(片马, alt.1,930m), Lushui Xian, western Yunnan, on January 24, 1974.Paratypes: No.74068, 1 male(ad.), collected from same locality as the holotype on January 26, 1974;No.74000, 1 female(ad.), collected from Zhongpianma(中片马, alt. 1,925 m), near the holotype locality, on January 18, 1974.Specimens examined: 5 males and females collected from Pianma and Yaojiaping (姚家坪), Lushui Xian, western Yunnan.Diagnosis: This subspcies differed from its allies in having a blackish olive-brown in genera colour and with an indistingui shable red colour of ears.
