SPECIES Microtus (Alexandromys) evoronensis

Author:Kovalskaya and Sokolov, 1980.
Citation:Zool. Zh., 59: 1410.
Common Name:Evoron Vole
Type Locality:Russia, Khabarovsk Krai, Lake Evoron (= Zvoron) basin, Devyatka River.
Distribution:Known only from the type locality (Meyer et al., 1996).
Status:IUCN Critically Endangered.
Comments:Subgenus Alexandromys, maximowiczii species group (Pavlinov and Rossolimo, 1998; Pavlinov et al., 1995a; Zagorodnyuk, 1990). Placed in subgenus Microtus by Pavlinov and Rossolimo (1987) and Meyer et al. (1996). Considered closely related to M. mujanensis and M. maximowiczii (Meyer, 1983); close kinship to M. mujanensis sustained by molar variation within the M. maximowiczii species group (Pozdnyakov, 1993) and by data accumulated from morphological, karyological, and hybridization studies (Meyer et al., 1996).
