SPECIES Sorex (Ognevia) mirabilis

Author:Ognev, 1937.
Citation:Byull. Moscow Ova. Ispyt. Prir. Otd. Biol., 46(5): 268.
Common Name:Ussuri Shrew
Type Locality:Russia, Primorskii Krai, Ussuriiskii r-n., Kamenka River (specified by Pavlinov and Rossolimo (1987).
Distribution:N and S Korea, NE China, and Ussuri region (Russia).
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Placed in monotypic subgenus Ognevia by Heptner and Dolgov (1967), who demonstrated that mirabilis is not conspecific with pacificus, as had been suggested earlier (Bobrinskii et al., 1965). Hutterer (1982b) suggested a closer relationship with Sorex (Homalurus) alpinus because of shared derived features of genital morphology. Karyotype has 2n = 38, FN = 66 (Zima et al., 1998).
