Using karyological, allozyme, and molecular genetic analysis, habitation of the four Sylvaemus wood mice species, pygmy wood mouse (S. uralensis), wood mouse (S. sylvaticus), yellow-necked mouse (S. flavicollis), and yellow-bellied mouse (S. fulvipectus) in Rostov oblast was demonstrated. Sylvaemus uralensis was distributed nearly over the whole territory of the oblast; S. sylvaticus was found in the central and western parts of the oblast on the right bank area of Don River; S. flavicollis inhabited northern and central parts of Rostov oblast on the right bank area of Don River; S. fulvipectus was found in the southern parts of the oblast, in the left bank area of Don River. Using the chromosome C-banding technique, it was demonstrated that the pygmy wood mice living in Rostov oblast in the right bank areas of Manych River and Don River in its low course, belonged to the eastern European chromosomal form of S. uralensis. The pygmy wood mice from the outskirts of the town of Salsk, the left bank area of Manych River, were probably hybrids between eastern European and southern European chromosomal forms. Based on the mitochondrial DNA cytochrome b gene fragment sequencing and chromosome C-banding, it was suggested that the wood mice inhabiting Rostov oblast belonged to the southern lineage of S. sylvaticus, living on Apennine Peninsula, Balkan Peninsula, and nearly throughout Ukraine.
