 Comments
       
  Comment: Grubb and Ansell (1996) recommended applying the name G. nagtglasii to the large West African dormouse traditionally known as G. hueti de Rochebrune. Their argument is supported by the dubious nature of the type locality of G. hueti given by de Rochebrune (1883), the lack of an available or likely holotype for G. hueti and existence of a holotype for nagtglasii, and because the animal used by de Rochebrune as a model to figure G. hueti is probably from Gabon, not Senegal (the type locality of G. hueti)
