Not illustrated. 1919 Excerpt: ...collected on Mount Gargues, September 1; and two embryos in a female from Ndi. November 3..

Epimys nieventris ulae Roosevelt, African Game Trails, Amer, ed., p. 478; London ed., p. 489. (Part; references to Sotik, Naivasha, and Rift Valley.)

This is the subspecies oifumatus with the gray undercolor to the hairs of the otherwise white underparts.

There are no pronounced differences in size or any other characters of consequence beyond this coloration of pelage to separate the two subspecies. Never found except among rocks; we always found it where there were cliffs or stony koppies. Lives in crevices in the rocks and along the ledges of the cliffs. Nocturnal.
