Range Description

Ochotona pallasi inhabits a widespread, but discontinuous geographic range throughout the Gobi Desert region (Smith et al. 1990). It occurs in Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, and China (Smith et al. 1990). The historical range of O. p. hamica is in the Tsagaan Bogd Uul (Mountains) of Mongolia, where it has not been seen in recent history (Smith et al. 1990). It is currently believed to occupy isolated mountains within the Atas Bogd Uul of Mongolia (Smith et al. 1990). Likewise, O. p. sunidica is thought to be isolated from the main distribution (Smith et al. 1990). The distributional range of O. p. pallasi has decreased (Smith et al. 1990). This species occupies elevations ranging from 1,000-3,200 m (Sokolov et al. 1994).
