Abstract:
Remains of 8 species (Soricidae: Sorex minutissimus, S. minutus, S. caecutiens, S. tundrensis, S. isodon, S. araneus, Neomys sp., Crocidura cf. leucodon) have been found in Late Pleistocene and Holocene layers from 9 localities of the Perm Pre-Ural. Their description, systematic position, and temporal distribution are given. S. tundrensis dominated in the explored territory until the early Holocene. Currently, this species is very rare. Fossil white-toothed shrew (Crocidura cf. leucodon) has been discovered for the first time in the study area.
