 Comments
       
  Comment: Comments: Cervini includes Axis, Cervus, Elaphurus, Przewalskium, Rucervus, and Rusa. Muntiacini includes Elaphodus and Muntiacus. Muntiacini generally has been regarded as a subfamily (Haltenorth, 1963) and has usually been attributed to Pocock, 1923, Proc. Zool. Soc. Lond., 1923:207; treated as a full family by Groves and Grubb (1990); relegated to tribal status in Cervinae, by Groves and Grubb (1987) and Grubb (2000b) supported by evidence in Kraus and Miyamoto (1991)
