The Saharan shrewCrocidura tarfayaensis Vesmanis and Vesmanis, 1980, has a limited disribution along the Atlantic coast of Sahara, south of Agadir (Morocco) through Western Sahara into Mauritania and is only known from few captures and some owl pellets.

The habitat was characterized by sand dunes along a river, with dense shrubberies ofTamarix sp., the huge grassErianthus ravennae… Expand
