INTRODUCTION The data which has been accumulated so far on rodents from the Sinai Peninsula is sporadic and mostly based on collections along two main routes, one from El-Qantara to El-Arish, the second from Suez through Abu-Rodeis to St. Catherina (see Fig. 1). Some of the records are based on specimens bought from Bedouins. Anderson (1902), Flower (1932) and Allen (1939) were the first to summarize data on rodents from Egypt and Sinai, while Allen (1915) dealt with rodents from Palestine including Sinai. During the last 20 years rodents have been collected in Sinai by Wassif (1953), Wassif and Hoogstraal (1954) and Wahrman and Zahavi (1957). Data about the rodents of the Sinai peninsula were recently summarized by Harrison (1972). The Sinai Peninsula is an integral part of the Palaearctic desert belt, and is of great zoogeographical importance as it constitutes (*) Department of Zoology, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Israel.

Although the Sinai Peninsula is regarded as an arid zone, the high mountain range in southern Sinai (over 2000 meters) is semi-arid with an annual snow-fall on the summits. Qadesh Barnea · St.
