P. 35-39
The stone marten Martes foina (Carnivora, Mustelidae) is widely distributed in continental Europe from the Mediterranean to the Baltic Sea, and from Spain to Volga River. North-eastern border of the species distribution in Eastern Europe is poorly known. Its presence in Moscow Province was confirmed by the specimen found in the vicinity of Kupavna. The recent records of M. foina from the European part of Russia are discussing, fragmentariness and heterogeneity of these data is demonstrating.
