Today the general opinion is that most of the Mediterranean islands characterised by late Quaternary mammalian endemics could not have been reached over the last 130 000 years by non-volant vertebrates except by rafting or swimming [144]. For instance, Schüle [188] observed that most of the alleged Quaternary land-bridges to Mediterranean islands are geologically impossible.

Moreover, in the central Mediterranean basin, Crocidura leucodon and Crocidura suaveolens seem to be sympatric on the Croatian island of Krk [337]. Systematic data Crocidura suaveolens debeauxi Dal Piaz, 1924, is the taxon reported from Corfu [49].
