Range Description

Ochotona iliensis is endemic to China, known only from the Borohoro Shan in Xinjiang, China (Hoffmann and Smith 2005). This species has a highly fragmented distribution, within a restricted geographic range (Li and Smith 2005). It is found at elevations between 2,800-4,100 m (Li and Smith 2005). Census work conducted in 2005 estimated that over the past decade the area of occupancy has declined to approximately 7% (previously 17%) of the extent of occurrence for this species (Li and Smith 2005). O. iliensis is no longer found at 57% of the previously inhabited sites (Li and Smith 2005).
