SPECIES Eudorcas rufifrons

Author:Gray, 1846.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., [ser. 1], 18: 214.
Common Name:Red-fronted Gazelle
Type Locality:"Senegal".
Distribution:Burkino Faso, N Cameroon, N Central African Republic, Chad, N Eritrea, Ethiopia (NW and Omo valley in SW), N Ghana (probably extinct), S Mali, S Mauritania, S Niger, N Nigeria, N Senegal, Sudan, and N Togo. Possibly occurred in Benin; possibly formerly a rare vagrant in The Gambia.
Status:IUCN Vulnerable as G. rufifrons and G. rufifrons tilonura, Lower Risk (nt) as G. thomsonii albonotatus.
Comments:Haltenorth (1963:112) excluded tilonura but Gentry (1972:90) provided evidence to include it. Revised as subspecies of Gazella cuvieri (Groves, 1969a), though later separated from cuvieri (Groves 1975a). Skull and horn proportions associate albonotata with rufifrons rather than thomsonii.
