SPECIES Stylodipus telum

Author:Lichtenstein, 1823.
Citation:Naturhist. Anhang (or Eversmann's Reise Orenburg): 120.
Common Name:Thick-tailed Three-toed Jerboa
Type Locality:Kazakhstan, steppe along NE shore of Aral Sea (Ognev, 1963b:303).
Distribution:E Ukraine, N Caucasus, W Turkmenistan, W Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan (Kuznetsov, 1965; Shenbrot, 1991b); E to N Xinjiang, China (see Chen and Wang, 1985; Ma et al., 1987; Mi et al., 1990; Qian et al., 1965; Shou, 1962; Wang, 2003; and Zheng and Zhang, 1990; but see comment below; Chinese range mapped by Zhang et al., 1997). See Shenbrot et al. (1995) for overall distribution
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Reviewed by Gromov and Erbajeva (1995), Ognev (1963b) and Shenbrot et al. (1995); subspecific revision contributed by Shenbrot (1991b). Karyotype provided by Vorontsov et al. (1969d). Because S. andrewsi is considered a synonym of S. telum by some workers, some of the earlier published records of S. telum from China represent S. andrewsi. Wang (2003) records S. telum only from N Xinjiang. See comments under S. andrewsi and S. sungorus. European Pleistocene records reviewed by Kowalski (2001). For synonyms see Ellerman and Morrison-Scott (1951), Shenbrot (1991b), Shenbrot et al. (1995).
