Common Name:Thomson's Gazelle
Type Locality:"the range of country from Kilimanjaro to Baringo and at various heights above 6000' [1829 m]"; restricted to "Kilimanjaro district" (Lydekker, 1914b:84) in Kenya (G. M. Allen, 1939:526).

Comments:Revised by Brooks (1961). Groves (1969a) included thomsonii in Gazella cuvieri; but Gentry (1972:88, 90-91) gave reasons for rejecting this classification. Groves (1985a, 1988) and Rebholz and Harley (1999) included thomsonii in E. rufifrons but Gentry (1964) presented evidence to show they are distinct.
