SPECIES Ochotona (Ochotona) huangensis

Author:Matschie, 1908.
Citation:Wiss. Ergebn. der Exped. Filchner nach China und Tibet 1903-05, 10(1): 214.
Common Name:Tsing-Ling Pika
Type Locality:Not specified; fixed by Allen (1938:544) as "...from the Tsingling [mountains] in the vicinity of Sianfu [Xian]." [China].
Distribution:In the mountains of C China, including Shaanxi, Gansu, Qinghai and Sichuan provinces.
Status:IUCN Endangered as O. thibetana huangensis.
Comments:Subgenus Ochotona. Formerly considered a subspecies of thibetana (Allen, 1938; Ellerman and Morrison-Scott, 1955; Feng and Zheng, 1985; Smith et al., 1990). Yu and Zheng (1992b) first suggested full species status for huangensis, based on differing morphology, and later (Yu et al., 1997, 2000) supported this with molecular studies. O. huangensis appears to be broadly sympatric with O. thibetana, but largely allopatric in distribution with O. cansus and O. thomasi.
