The lesser striped shrew (Sorex bedfordiae) is a species of mammal in the family Soricidae. It is found in China, Myanmar, and Nepal.[2]


In Nepal it is found in montane forests and alpine areas (above 4,000 m asl). In China it can be found at lower elevations (3,500 m asl) in the rhododendron-conifer zone.[3] It lives in the ground litter, and forages on insects.
