SPECIES Bunolagus monticularis

Author:Thomas, 1903.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 7, 11: 78.
Common Name:Riverine Rabbit
Type Locality:"Deelfontein, Cape Colony," South Africa.
Distribution:C Karoo (31E22'S, 22EE), Western Cape Prov. (South Africa).
Status:IUCN Critically Endangered.
Comments:Reviewed by Petter (1972b). Formerly in Lepus (Ellerman and Morrison-Scott, 1951), but returned to Bunolagus by Angermann (1966). Karyological evidence supports the separation of Bunolagus (2n=44) from Lepus (2n=48) (Robinson and Dippenaar, 1987; Robinson and Skinner, 1983); its closest relatives are probably Pronolagus (Corbet, 1983).
