Sorex daphaenodon Thomas, 1907  —Siberian Large-toothed Shrew

Sorex daphaenodon Thomas, 1907b p.407  ; Type locality- Sakhalin Island, Russia; Han, 2004a p.31.

Range: A specimen of S. daphaenodon  collected at Mt. Baekdu in North Korea in 2001 represents the only record in Korea ( Ohdachi & Han 2005; Fig. 11View FIGURE 11). S. daphaenodon  inhabits moist and humid areas in mixed forest (conifer and broad-leaved forests) over much of its range and may also occupy birch groves in the wooded steppe.

Remarks: The Siberian large-toothed shrew is rare in Korea. Three subspecies (S. d. daphaenodon  , S. d. sanguinidens, and S. d. scaloni) have been reported but the subspecies inhabiting Korea remain unstudied. Additional research around Mt. Baekdu is warranted to define the status of this species in Korea.
