The Hose's Palm Civet ("Diplogale hosei"), is a member of the Viverridae family. It was named for zoologist Charles Hose. It is known only from the forests of Borneo, in Malaysia.

This animal is known from only 15 museum specimens, the last of which was collected in 1955. A few recent sightings exist, including photos captured by a camera-trap in 2003-04. These photos were taken in lowlands (earlier records are from highlands) and suggest it perhaps is more widespread than previously believed.
