SPECIES Lepus (Sabanalagus) fagani

Author:Thomas, 1902.
Actual Date:1903
Citation:Proc. Zool. Soc. Lond., 1902(2): 315.
Common Name:Ethiopian Hare
Type Locality:"Zegi, Lake Tsana [Tana, Ethiopia] 4000 feet. [1219 m]"
Distribution:N and W Ethiopia, and adjacent SE Sudan, south to extreme NW Kenya.
Status:IUCN Data Deficient.
Comments:Subgenus Sabanalagus (Avarianov, 1998). Formerly included in crawshayi (= victoriae = microtis) by Gureev (1964:204), but Azzaroli-Puccetti (1987a, b) maintained its specific identity. Its known distribution is largely allo- or parapatric to that of microtis; may be a highland allospecies (Flux and Angermann, 1990).
