ⓘ Kobe mole

The Kobe mole is a species of mammal in the family Talpidae. It is endemic to a number of islands in central and southern Japan.

At least one researcher believes M. kobeae and a large mole M. Robusta to be the same species. Further research is necessary to determine the correct taxonomic classification.
