Citation:Proc. Zool. Soc. Lond., 1838: 55.
Common Name:Indian Brown Mongoose
Type Locality:"India".

Status:CITES Appendix III (India) as H. brachyurus fuscus; IUCN Vulnerable as H. f. fuscus.
Comments:Some have placed fuscus in brachyurus (Bechthold, 1936; Wenzel and Haltenorth, 1972). Fredga (1972) and Corbet and Hill (1992) argued that it should remain separate. Corbet and Hill (1992) recognized only four subspecies (fuscus, phillipsi, siccatus, rubidior).
