The Flores long-nosed rat, also known as Paula’s long-nosed rat, (Paulamys naso) is a species of rodent endemic to Flores Island, Indonesia. This species was first described from subfossil fragments in 1981 and a living specimen was reported from the montane forest of western Flores in 1991. It was recorded as common between 1,000 and 2,000 m above sea level on the volcanic mountain Gunung Ranakah, but is believed to be threatened by habitat destruction. It is the only known member of the genus Paulamys.
