Sorex minutissimus Zimmermann, 1780   —Eurasian Least Shrew

Sorex minutissimus Zimmermann, 1780 p.385   ; Type locality-Yenisei, Russia; Han, 1994 p.45; Won & Smith, 1999 p.10; Han, 2004a p.33.

S. minutissimus ishikawai Yoshiyuki, 1988 p.152   ; Yoon, 1992 p.18.

Range: Only five specimens of the Eurasian least shrew were collected in Korea. The records came from collections made around Mt. Seorak and Odae ( Han 2004a; Fig. 13 View FIGURE 13 ).

Remarks: Yoshiyuki (1988) subsumed the population in Korea as S. minutissimus ishikawai   based on specimens collected at Mt. Odae, but other mammalogists did not recognize the subspecies name ( Yoon 1992; Won & Smith 1999; Han 2004a). Additional research on this taxon is needed to delineate its distribution and taxonomy in Korea.
