Author:Stroganov, 1952.
Citation:Byull. Moscow Ova. Ispyt. Prir. Otd. Biol., 57: 21.
Common Name:Kozlov's Shrew
Type Locality:China, E Tibet (= Qinghai), Dzechu (Za Qu) River, tributary of Mekong River (= Lancang Jiang).
Distribution:SE Tibet (China).
Status:IUCN Critically Endangered.
Comments:Subgenus Sorex, S. minutus group. Type species of subgenus Eurosorex Stroganov, 1952. Known for long from a single specimen, until a near-topotype (USNM 449080) was obtained in 1987 (Hoffmann, 1996a). Regarded as a subspecies of thibetanus by some authors (Dolgov and Hoffmann, 1977; Hoffmann, 1987, 1996a, b) or included in buchariensis by others (Corbet, 1978c; Gureev, 1979). Hutterer (1979) recognized inconsistencies in the various published figures and descriptions of the same holotype specimen and regarded kozlovi as a doubtful taxon; see also under buchariensis and thibetanus.
