KEY WORDS: narrow-headed voles, Lasiopodomys gregalis, South-East Transbaikalia.

ABSTRACT. The sample of 115 skulls and 28 sequences of cytochrome b gene of narrow-headed voles Lasiopodomys gregalis, mainly from South-East Transbaikalia was studied. Geographic variation of craniometric features was not found in the studied sample. Such morphological variation contradicts deep mitochondrial divergence between voles from the South and North of the region under discussion.
