Range Description:Crocidura katinka is recorded from Israel, Palestine and Syria; there is also an unpublished record from southwestern Iran that appears to represent this species (Hutterer and Kock 2002, Hutterer 2005, R. Hutterer pers. comm. 2007). The records from Israel are old and are based on owl pellets; it is likely that the species is now extinct there (R. Hutterer pers. comm. 2007).
