Abstract: Molecular phylogeny of crocidurine shrews (Insectivora, Soricidae) in northeastern Asia was investigated to confirm the taxonomic status of unidentified specimens of Crocidura from Cheju Island, South Korea. Phylogenetic trees were constructed by neighbor-joining (NJ) and maximum likelihood (ML) methods, based on the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene sequences (402 base pairs) of 40 individuals of seven crocidurine species and three unidentified specimens from 31 localities mainly in northeastern Asia. Phylogenetic positions of the three unidentified specimens from Cheju Island were compared with those of Suncus murinus, C. attenuata, C. dsinezumi, C. lasiura, C. sibirica, C. suaveolens and C. watasei. Both in NJ and ML trees, the three unidentified specimens were included in the cluster of C. dsinezumi and obviously different from C. suaveolens on Cheju Island. Thus, the present investigation demonstrated that both of C. suaveolens and C. dsinezumi exist on Cheju Island.
