Survey of distribution of Suncus etruscus in the Balkan Penninsula, adjacent Adriatic- and Ionnian Islands as well as on Aegean Islands is given. Six Greek and one Bulgarian localities are reported for the first time. Recent records reveal that in the Balkans, S. etruscus is not confined only to the coastal zone, some localities are in distance 60–90 km from the sea. The highest confirmed occurrence is from ca. 600 m a. s. l. Analysis of Tyto alba pellets appeared as the most useful method in study of S. etruscus occurrence. Factors affecting its distribution are briefly discussed.
