SPECIES Microtus (Alexandromys) mujanensis

Author:Orlov and Kovalskaya, 1978.
Citation:Zool. Zh., 57: 1224.
Common Name:Muya Valley Vole
Type Locality:Russia, Buryat, Bauntovski Dist., Vitim River Basin, Muya Valley.
Distribution:Known only from vicinity of 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). A member of subgenus Microtus according to Pavlinov and Rossolimo (1987) and Meyer et al. (1996). Analysis of molar variation in the M. maximowiczii species group indicates close relationship between M. mujanensis (2n = 38, FN = 50-53) and M. evoronensis (2n = 40, FN = 58) (Pozdnyakov, 1993), as does integration of morphological, karyological, and hybridization data (Meyer, 1983; Meyer et al., 1996).
