The southern water shrew is a semi-aquatic long-tailed soricid found in the Appalachian mountains. Its actual distribution and status may be inadequate because it is difficult to capture. The first record of the southern water shrew is an adult male collected from Graham County, North Carolina.
Although sizeable literature exists on Southern Appalachian mammals, some western North Carolina counties, such as Graham, have gaps in the distributional records for a number of small mammal species. The remote nature of the region contributes to these gaps. The authors discuss small mammal surveys conducted in this county in the Nantahala National Forest in September 2003 and in September 2005.
