The type-specimen of this species described by me in the Notes from the Leyden Museum, 1880, p. 62, has been figured on plate I of the work entitled: »Bijdragen tot de kennis der Fauna van Midden-Sumatra, 1887”. Although there is no reason to suppose that it is a very rare species, it nevertheless si a fact that it very seldom has been observed. Mr. P. J. van Houten, formerley at Padang, related (see Fauna vaii Midden-Sumatra, p. 23) that he was told that there has been seen a Hare in a coffeeplantation in the neighborhood of Padang.
