Abstract - We report three new locations of Marbled Polecat Vormela peregusna in Mongolia, comprising: 1) the Tuul river valley in Altanbulag soum, Tuv aimag; 2) the northern slope of the Mongol Altai mountain range in Tsetseg soum, Khovd aimag; and 3) the Ikh Nart Na­ture Reserve in Dalanjargalan soum, Dornogobi aimag. To our knowledge, the Marbled Polecat has not been previously recorded in these areas and our observations expand the known distribution of the species in the country. Currently, specimens of Marbled Polecat, represented as 11 pelts and nine skulls (two as stuffed animals), are housed in collections of five research institutions and museums of Mongolia.
