SPECIES Crocidura pergrisea

Author:Miller, 1913.
Citation:Proc. Biol. Soc. Wash., 26: 113.
Common Name:Pale Gray Shrew
Type Locality:Kashmir, Baltistan, Shigar, Skoro Loomba, 9,500 ft. (2,896 m).
Distribution:Mountains of W Himalaya (Kashmir).
Status:IUCN Vulnerable.
Comments:Some authors have included armenica, serezkyensis, and zarudnyi (see Spitzenberger, 1971a, and Corbet, 1978c, for a review of literature); but all are now considered separate species. A considerable diversity of opinions exists in the literature on the allocation of the different forms. Following Jenkins (1976), the name pergrisea is applied only to the largest species, as represented by the type series from Baltistan.
