 Comments
       
  Comment: CITES: Added to Appendix III by Nepal, adopted at the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (Doha, 2010)  
    Status: CITES - Appendix III (Nepal); IUCN - Vulnerable  
    Comments: The type of Cervus labipes F. Cuvier, 1832 is not a deer from the Philippines but a female Four-horned Antelope (Sundevall, 1846). The incorrect original spelling Antilope sub-4-cornutus Elliot was justifiably emended to subquadricornutus by Hodgson (1847; Calcutta Journal of Natural History, 8:89). Revised by Groves (2003)
