Hyorhinomys stuempkei

Hyorhinomys stuempkei is a recently discovered species of rodent in the family Muridae, more specifically in the subfamily Murinae, endemic to Sulawesi, Indonesia. This species was discovered in 2015 by Jacob A. Esselstyn and his team, Anang S. Achmadi, Heru Handika, and Kevin C. Rowe", Esselstyn proposed "Sulawesi snouter" as a common name for it. The word "snouter" references the fictional text, The Snouters: Form and Life of the Rhinogrades by the German zoologist Gerolf Steiner. Steiner wrote this text as a fictional naturalist, Harald Stümpke, and the specific epithet of H. stuempkei pays homage to this fictional individual.
