Found still alive by M. Manavella, at about 2030 m. Most of the land was covered with snow. The mole died a few hours after, and I took only the carrion (and two photos) and buried it.

Description from Wikipedia

The order Soricomorpha ("shrew-form") is a taxon within the class of mammals. In previous years it formed a significant group within the former order Insectivora. However, that order was shown to be polyphyletic and various new orders were split off from it, including Afrosoricida (tenrecs and golden moles), Macroscelidea (elephant shrews), and Erinaceomorpha (hedgehogs and gymnures), leaving just four families as shown here, leaving Insectivora empty and disbanded.
