New Data on Distribution of Suncus etruscus Savi, 1822 (Mammalia: Soricidae) in Eastern Anatolia

Abstract

A new record of Suncus etruscus from Eastern Anatolia was presented in this study. The record is based on jawbones and skull obtained from owl pellets. This cryptic species, which is very difficult to catch and observe alive, can be found in pellets. Therefore, findings based on pellets make it easier to obtain data on the distribution area of the species.

Abstract

Bu çalışmada Doğu Anadolu'dan yeni bir Suncus etruscus kaydı sunulmuştur. Kayıt, baykuş peletlerinden elde edilen çene kemikleri ve kafatasına dayanmaktadır. Yakalanması ve canlı olarak gözlemlenmesi oldukça zor olan bu kriptik türe peletlerde de rastlanabilmektedir. Bu nedenle peletlere dayalı bulgular, türün yayılış alanına ilişkin verilerin elde edilmesini kolaylaştırmaktadır
