SPECIES Sicista kazbegica

Author:Sokolov, Baskevich, and Kovalskaya, 1986.
Citation:Zool. Zh., 65(6): 949.
Common Name:Kazbeg Birch Mouse
Type Locality:Georgia, Kazbegi District, 14 km NW Kobi, Suatisi Gap, upper reaches Terek River, subalpine zone, 2200 m.
Distribution:Greater Caucasus: southern flanks in N Ossetia region of Russia, and the Kazbegi District on the northern flanks in Georgia (Shenbrot et al. 1995; Sokolov and Baskevich, 1992; Sokolov et al., 1986b, 1987a).
Status:IUCN Data Deficient.
Comments:Sokolov et al. (1986b) gave karyological and spermatozoal characters that distinguished the Georgian population of this species from S. caucasica and S. kluchorica, and S. armenica (Sokolov and Baskevich, 1988). Sokolov and Baskevich (1992) reported chromosomal, morphological, and spermatozoal data for a population from the North Ossetia region, which shows some chromosomal differences that they interpreted as simply geographic variation within S. kazbegica. Recognized by Pavlinov and Rossolimo (1998) and reviewed by Gromov and Erbajeva (1995) and Shenbrot et al. (1995). See also comment under Sicista.
