  Comment: Status: IUCN - Lower Risk (lc)  
    Comments: Ranck (1968) recognized two species in this complex, J. jaculus and J. deserti, but Harrison (1978) showed that they are conspecific based on Ranck's criteria (see also discussion in Corbet, 1978c:152). Mendelssohn and Yom-Tov (1999) suggested that schlueteri is a species because it occurs adjacent to J. j. vocator in Israel without apparently intergrading as was claimed by Harrison and Bates (1991).
