SPECIES Muntiacus crinifrons

Author:Sclater, 1885.
Citation:Proc. Zool. Soc. Lond., 1885: p. 1, pl. 1.
Common Name:Black Muntjac
Type Locality:"Vicinity of Ningpo, China" (= China, Zhejiang, near Ningpo).
Distribution:E China (S Anhui, N Fujian, Jiangxi, and Zhejiang; not reliably recorded from Yunnan).
Status:CITES Appendix I; IUCN Vulnerable.
Comments:Included in muntjak by Haltenorth (1963:42). Former presumed occurrence from Yunnan and Guangdong to Jaingsu (China) (Shou, 1962:454) may involve confusion with M. truongsongensis. Records from N Burma (Rabinowitz and Saw Tun Khaing, 1998; Rabinowitz et al., 1998) are probably based on M. gongshanensis. Differs radically from that species in karyotype (Yang et al., 1995, 1997).
