Some forms united under species Alticola tuvinicus s. lato (4 samples), A. semicanus (1 sample), A. argentatus (8 samples) are compared by 16 characters by means of principal component method and canonical analysis. Species distinctness of A. semicanus is confirmed. Specific status of the form olchonensis is supposed. The results concerning tuvinicus s. str. and kosogol are not clear-cut: these forms may be well differentiated subspecies within either A. tuvinicus s. lato or A. argentatus.
