Range Description

Talpa caeca is endemic to Europe, where it is found in the western Alps, the Apennines, and the Balkan peninsula. It is likely to occur in Albania. Records from the Carpathians (Romania) require confirmation. Small blind moles recently found in Turkish Thrace and southern Bulgaria have been ascribed to T. levantis, but the possibility that they are in fact T. caeca merits further investigation. The species occurs from sea level to 2,000 m, although it is found more often above 1,000 m (Krytufek 1999).
