Pika ID Sichuan

DSC_0091 DSC_0094 DSC_0100

Hi all, photographed this pika in Yading National Park, Sichuan. It was foraging along a grassy slope near some forests, at above 3000m elevation. Was searching online and several possible species popped up – Moupin Pika, Gansu Pika and Thomas’s Pika. Identification seems to require morphological measurements, was wondering if the range of the species can help in ID? Would appreciate any help in identifying this pika!

    Thomas’s has no or almost no white margin to ears, and Gansu tends to be lighter, so I’d say Moupin. You can ask Nikolai Formozov on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/nikolai.formozov
