  Comment: Status: IUCN - Data Deficient as Cervus mariannus  
    Comments: Treated as a separate species from C. unicolor by Haltenorth (1963), and by Grubb and Groves (1983), who revised this taxon. Brought to Ogasawara Isls in late 18th to early 19th centuries by Spanish ships; extinct there by about 1925; reintroduced from Guam after World War II but do not now survive (Miura and Yoshihara, 2002)
