A large part of contemporary landscapes is favourable for different taxa of voles such as Microtus (Lasiopodomys) brandti, Microtus (Stenocranius) gregalis, Alticola semicanus, Ellobius tancrei, which are relatively widespread and abundant (Sokolov & Orlov 1980, Dmitriev et al.

The mole vole (Ellobius tancrei) has recently been confirmed as a natural intermediate host of E.

In recent decades, however, geneticists have found a few exceptions, including two lemming species with XY females and some Ellobius
molevoles in which neither sex carries a Y.
Fossorial rodents are represented in the cold deserts of South America by the tuco-tuco (Ctenomys, family Ctenomyidae); in North America by the pocket gophers (Geomyidae); and in the cold Asiatic deserts and subdeserts by the mole-voles (Ellobius
, family Cricetidae **) and the mole-rat (Spalax giganteus, family Spalacidae **).

They were mostly members of the Meriones genus, although a few Microtus socialis irani and 1 Ellobius

The rare porcupine Hystrix indica hirsutirostris lives in dense patches of Haloxylon ammodendrum, which are also home to the common mole-vole (Ellobius
