Remarks:

Syn.: Hemiechinus auritus (Gmelin, 1770); Perhaps that material has been collected during the First Central-Asian (Mongolian) Expedition of N.M. Przewalsky (November 1870 – October 1873), therefore, collection data "1874" is uncertain. Current species identification by Voyta L.L., 2015. Gureev A.A. in 1981 identified as belonging to Erinaceus (Hemiechinus) auritus turanicus (Satunin, 1905).
