The Stone Marten Martes foina (Erxleben, 1777) (Mammalia, Carnivora) from Ibiza (Pitiusic, Balearic Islands)
Delibes, M., Amores, F.
One skin and 38 skulls of martens from Ibiza have been studied. The results confirm the specific identity of these martecs as Martes foina (Erxleben, 1777). On average, Ibiza Stone Martens are smaller than the European ones, with the exception of some teeth measurements. There is a sexual dimorphism in size, males being bigger than females. Craniometrically, Ibiza martens seem to be similar to those from Crete, Crimea and the Middle East. The species hasprobably become extinct in the island within the last fifteen years.
