SPECIES Tetracerus quadricornis

Author:de Blainville, 1816.
Citation:Bull. Sci. Soc. Philom. Paris, 1816: 75.
Common Name:Four-horned Antelope.
Type Locality:"native de l'Inde"; "plains of Peninsular India" (Lydekker, 1914b:222).
Distribution:India, Nepal (Terai).
Status:CITES Appendix III (Nepal); IUCN Vulnerable.
Comments:The type of Cervus labipes F. Cuvier, 1832 is not a deer from the Philippines but a female Four-horned Antelope (Sundevall, 1846). The incorrect original spelling Antilope sub-4-cornutus Elliot was justifiably emended to subquadricornutus by Hodgson (1847; Calcutta Journal of Natural History, 8:89). Revised by Groves (2003).
