SPECIES Allactaga (Allactaga) vinogradovi

Author:Argyropulo, 1941.
Citation:Fauna SSSR, Mlekopitaiushchiy, Opredelitel grizunov, Izdatelstvo Akademii Nauk, SSSR: 138.
Common Name:Vinogradov’s Jerboa
Type Locality:Kazakhstan, Dzhambul region, Burnoye and Rovnoye.
Distribution:S Kazakhstan, E Uzbekistan, and Kyrgyzstan (see Shenbrot, 1993; Shenbrot et al., 1995).
Status:IUCN – Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Subgenus Allactaga. Shenbrot (1993) showed that A. vinogradovi differs from A. elater in toothrow length and phallic morphology, and that the two are sympatric along the Talas River and in SE Betpak-Dala (Kazakhstan). While the species is recognized by most workers (Pavlinov and Rossolimo, 1998; Pavlinov et al., 1995; Shenbrot et al., 1995), Gromov and Erbajeva (1995) retained vinogradovi in the synonymy of A. elater. Reviewed by Shenbrot et al. (1995). There are no recent records of A. vinogradovi from Tajikistan, but the species occurred there during middle Pleistocene (G. Shenbrot, in litt., 2003).
