Description: The star-nosed mole (Condylura cristata) is a semi-aquatic insectivore, commonly found near marshy areas and streams. We report two captures of star-nosed moles from a xeric, upland pine forest more than 500 m from the nearest persistent source of water. Both captures occurred during rainy nights, suggesting that star-nosed moles use rain events as opportunities for dispersal through upland habitats.
Keywords: Star-nosed mole, Condylura cristata, pine forests, dispersal.
