SPECIES Genetta angolensis

Author:Bocage, 1882.
Citation:J. Sci. Math. Phys. Nat. Lisboa, ser. 1, 9: 29.
Common Name:Angolan Genet
Type Locality:"Calcuimba" [placed in Angola, Caconda (1347'S, 1508'E)].
Distribution:Angola, Dem. Rep. Congo, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe.
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Crawford-Cabral (1970) argued that mossambica should be considered a synonym of angolensis, but later (Crawford-Cabral and Pacheco, 1992) changed and placed mossambica in zambesiana (= maculata). Crawford-Cabral and Fernandes (1999) considered "mossambica" specimens--as identified by Roberts (1951) distinct from mossambica Matschie, 1902, and therefore constituting a separate species closely related to maculata.
