Discussion: Hutchison (1968), Storch and Qiu (1983), Hutterer (1993 a), and other authors included also Condylurini and Scalopini , which are shifted here into Scalopinae , based on the the mtDNA phylogeny of Shinohara et al. (2001). The former Desmaninae are downgraded to tribal level, and a new tribe is proposed for the Neurotrichus lineage.
