  Comment: CITES: Appendix I adopted at the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (Doha, 2010)  
    Status: CITES - Appendix I as Gazella dama; U.S. ESA - Endangered as G. d. lozanoi and G. d. mhorr, otherwise Proposed Endangered as G. dama; IUCN - Endangered as G. dama  
    Comments: Revised by Andreae and Krumbiegel (1976), who retained lozanoi and permista (includes reducta) as separate subspecies, and Cano Perez (1984), who reduced them to synonymy. Wirth (1984) defended the status of these two subspecies. Status reviewed by Mallon and Kingswood (2001)
