Horsfield's treeshrew (Tupaia javanica), also called Javan treeshrew, is a treeshrew species within the Tupaiidae. It is endemic to the Indonesian islands of Sumatra, Bali, Java and Nias where it inhabits foremost primary forest.[2]

It was first described by Thomas Horsfield in 1822.[3] Several subspecies have been proposed based on variation in colourisation; however, colour is an unreliable distinguishing character.[4]
