A survey of small mammals from Mt. Tay Con Linh II, Ha Giang Province, Vietnam (22°45'27"N, 104°49'49"E) resulted in the capture of 17 species of bat, insectivore, and rodent: Cynopterus sphinx, Rousettus leschenaulti, Sphaerias blanfordi, Scaptonyx fusicaudus, Chodsigoa parca, Chodsigoa caovansunga new species, Blarinella griselda, Crocidura attenuata, Crocidura fuliginosa, Crocidura wuchihensis, Belomys pearsonii, Callosciurus inornatus, Leopoldamys edwardsi, Niviventer fulvescens, Niviventer langbianis, Niviventer tenaster and Chiropodomys gliroides. In addition Ratufa bicolor and Tamiops sp. are reported from observations. Scaptonyx fusicaudus and Blarinella griselda represent new distributional records for Vietnam. As part of the process of identifying specimens of Vietnamese Chodsigoa, we examined specimens of C. lamula and C. parva, including the holotype of parva and concluded that C. parva is not synonymous with C. lamula but actually represents a separate, very small species currently known only from the type locality in Yunnan, China.
