Range Description

The Cyprus mouse Mus cypriacus is endemic to the island of Cyprus in the Mediterranean (Bonhomme et al. 2004, Cucchi et al. 2006). It may be quite widespread in upland areas, and is typically found at altitudes of 300-900 m, although there are some records from 100-150 m (Cucchi et al. 2006). Among the 15 trapping localities sampled in different biotopes on the southern part of the island, M. cypriacus was captured in eight of them (Cucchi et al. 2006). Further research is required in order to establish the range of this new species.
