ID Help please. Royle’s Mountain Vole ?

Dear Friends,

I need Id help for this species which I have documented in Ladakh in the month of June at about 4600 m.

I first thought it is a Royle’s Mountain Vole, but not sure. Please give your valuable inputs to help me identify this.

Many thanks in advance..

    I’d say it’s Stoliczka’s mountain vole. White tail is said to be diagnostic.

    Dear Vladimir,

    Thanks a lot for your comment. I am confused looking at the material available online, and hance uploaded 3 more distinct looking voles from Ladakh. It should be visible in a day or two, please also comment on those..

    Thanks & Regards,
