The Chinese striped hamster (''Cricetulus barabensis''), also known as the striped dwarf hamster, is a species of hamster. It is distributed across Northern Asia, from southern Siberia through Mongolia and northeastern China to northern North Korea. An adult Chinese striped hamster weighs , and has a body length of with a tail of . It is smaller and has a much shorter tail than the greater long-tailed hamster, ''Tscherskia triton'', which inhabits much of the same range.
The Chinese striped hamster was first described in 1773 as ''Cricetulus barabensis'' by the German zoologist Peter Simon Pallas. There is quite some confusion over the Latin name of the Chinese striped hamster and the closely related Chinese hamster. Some people consider the Chinese hamster (''Cricetulus griseus'') and the Chinese striped hamster (''Cricetulus barabensis'') different species, whereas others classify them as identical, the Chinese striped hamster as a subspecies of the Chinese hamster (in which case the Latin name of the Chinese striped hamster would be ''Cricetulus griseus barabensis'')〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=Taxonomy of common rodent and rodent-like pets )〕 or the other way round (in which case the Latin name of the Chinese hamster would be ''Cricetulus barabensis griseus'').
Six subspecies are recognised; ''C. b. humatus'' is found in Heilongjiang, Jilin and Inner Mongolia; ''C. b. griseus'' is found in Liaoning, Inner Mongolia, Hebei, Beijing, Tianjin, Shandong, Henan and Shanxi; ''C. b. manchuricus'' is found in eastern Heilongjiang; ''C. b. obscurus'' is found in Inner Mongolia, Ningxia, eastern Gansu, northern Shaanxi and Shanxi; ''C. b. pseudogriseus''; and ''C. b. xinganensis'' is found in northern Heilongjiang and northeastern Inner Mongolia.〔
