 Geographic Information
  Geographic Division: Africa  



  Comment: Status: IUCN - Vulnerable as G. rufifrons and G. rufifrons tilonura, Lower Risk (nt) as G. thomsonii albonotatus  
    Comments: Haltenorth (1963:112) excluded tilonura but Gentry (1972:90) provided evidence to include it. Revised as subspecies of Gazella cuvieri (Groves, 1969a), though later separated from cuvieri (Groves 1975a). Skull and horn proportions associate albonotata with rufifrons rather than thomsonii
