SPECIES Cricetulus kamensis

Author:Satunin, 1903.
Citation:Ann. Zool. Mus. St. Petersbourg, 7: 574.
Common Name:Tibetan Dwarf Hamster
Type Locality:China, NE Tibet (Xizang Prov.), Mekong Dist., Moktschjun River.
Distribution:China, Tibetan Plateau (SE Xinjiang, Xizang, and adjacent parts of Qinghai and Gansu; Zhang et al., 1997).
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Some workers would include alticola as a subspecies (Feng et al., 1986; Wang, 2003; Zhang et al., 1997; see account of C. alticola). G. M. Allen (1940) treated kozlovi as a synonym of C. barabensis, and lama was listed as a species by Ellerman (1941) and Ellerman and Morrison-Scott (1951). See Wang and Zheng (1973) for the association of kozlovi, lama, and tibetanus as subjective synonyms of C. kamensis.
