Özet

This investigation was undertaken in order to provide some explanation in chromosomal polymorphism which is widely observed among the members of genus Spalax and also, an attempt was made to elucidate the speciation in this genus. 47 specimens of the mole rat from lower Euphrates were studied; of these, 18 specimens, taken from the east of the river, namely from Sanliurfa, were identified as S. ehrenbergi kirgisorum.
