Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 9, 9: 187.
Common Name:Nubra Pika
Type Locality:"Tuggur, Nubra Valley, alt. 10,000" [Ladak, Kashmir, India].
Distribution:Southern edge of Tibetan Plateau from Ladak (India, China) through Nepal to E Tibet (China).
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Subgenus Ochotona. Assigned to pusilla by Ellerman and Morrison-Scott (1951), to roylei (as O. lama) by Corbet (1978c) and to thibetana (as O. t. lama) by Feng et al. (1986). Recognized as distinct by A. T. Smith et al. (1990), followed by Yu and Zheng (1992a). Its closest relations were thought to be with O. thibetana, but Yu et al. (2000) demonstrated that they are with O. curzoniae. Also see comment under O. roylei.
