Abstract

Gray voles of the “maximowiczii” group of the genus Alexandromys were found in the Argi River of the Amur region (northeastern part of Verkhnezeiskaya Plain). Analysis of mtDNA showed its similarity to A. evoronensis. The karyotype was 2n = 36, and NFa = 51–52. The karyotypes of these individuals did not contain the marker chromosome typical for Alexandromys maximowiczii.
