GENUS Poelagus

Author:St. Leger, 1932.
Citation:Proc. Zool. Soc. Lond., 1932(1): 119.
Type Species:Lepus marjorita St. Leger, 1929.
Comments:Originally spelled PoŽlagus, but this is a diaeresis and not an umlaut and thus the correct spelling is Poelagus (see Art. 32.5.2 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, 1999). Formerly placed as subgenus of Pronolagus; see Ellerman and Morrison-Scott (1951:425); but see also Petter (1972b:5). Formerly placed as subgenus of Caprolagus; see Gureev (1964:152).
