Animalia Chordata Mammalia Eulipotyphla Soricidae

Scientific Name: Sorex kozlovi Stroganov, 1952
Common Name(s):
English Kozlov's Shrew
Taxonomic Notes: The taxonomic status of this species requires investigation. It is still considered by some authors to be a subspecies of Sorex thibetanus or S. buchariensis (Hutterer 2005). Hutterer (2005) separates S. buchariensis, kozlovi, planiceps, and thibetanus on the basis of differences in dentition, but suggests that a complete analysis of these species is needed to resolve their taxonomic arrangement.
