 Abstract: This RAP provided a unique opportunity to increase our knowledge of the small mammal diversity of southwestern Ghana. 105 terrestrial small mammal captures, composed of 6 species of shrews and 10 species of rodents, and 82 bat captures composed of 15 species were made. The shrew Crocidura obscurior is the first record for Ghana. Crocidura buettikoferi and C. foxi are first records for southwestern Ghana. At Krokosua Hills we documented the rare microbat Scotophilus nucella (IUCN Red List: Vulnerable), which was described in 1984 and hitherto known from only ten specimens from Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire and Uganda. Overall the small mammal species composition clearly reflects a forest fauna. Especially among the bats sampled, not a single savanna species was present despite partially degraded forest conditions.
