エチゴモグラの分類学的地位 Taxonomic Status of the Large Mole from the Echigo Plain, Central Japan, with Description of a New Species (Mammalia, Insectivora, Talpidae)
A new species of the genus Mogera is described from the Echigo Plain in central Japan under the name of Mogera etigo. It is similar to M. tokudae from Sado Island in such primitive characters as vertebral formula and shape of muzzle pad, but is different from M. tokudae in much larger relative values of body and cranial dimensions, larger manus, and smaller upper and lower second premolars, the last feature of which seems to indicate relatively advanced stage of evolution.
