Sorex isodon Turov, 1924  —Taiga Shrew

Sorex araneus tomensis  isodon Turov, 1924 p.111  ; Type locality- Lake Baikal , Russia  .

S. gravesi Goodwin, 1933 p.3  ; Type locality-Monoma River , Eastern Siberia, Russia  .

S. araneus: Han, 1994 p.45  ; Won & Smith, 1999 p.9.

S. isodon: Han, 2004a p.33  .

Range: The first collection of S. isodon  occurred in 1999 on Mt. Odae in South Korea, but previous records in North Korea, possibly mistakenly identified genuine S. isodon  as S. unguiculatus ( Ohdachi & Han 2005)  . If the North Korean records represent S. isodon  , the distribution would range throughout higher mountain ranges from central Korea northward into northern North Korea ( Kim et al. 2015; Fig. 14View FIGURE 14).

Remarks: Previously, S. isodon  was classified as a subspecies of S. araneus  or S. sinalis  . Since the name isodon  had a prior use for an infrasubspecific taxon ( Sorex araneus tomensis  isodon  ), ‘ Turov, 1924 ’, isodon  was considered an invalid name by Corbet (1978). Therefore, gravesi Goodwin, 1933  preceded isodon Stroganov, 1936  as a species name. However, Hoffmann (1987) recommended the use of ‘ Sorex isodon Turov, 1924  ’ as an available name retaining the commonly used isodon  instead of the unfamiliar gravesi  . Hutterer (2005b) adopted Hoffmann’s recommendation. We followed this suggestion.
