Species Code: SOPR
Breeding Range Map
In Washington, Preble's Shrew is known only from the Blue Mountains. All specimens were found in a small area including Subalpine Fir/Lodgepole Pine, and Grand Fir/Englelmann Spruce forests between 5000 and 6000 feet. These are atypical of habitats where these shrews are found in other states.
It is peripheral in the Subalpine Fir zone, only in the Blue Mountains where closed coniferous forests provided good habitat.
It is believed that this species is at the very edge of its range in Washington State.
