 Comments
       
  Comment: Comments: The genus is available from Brisson, 1762 (Opinion 1894, International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, 1998). Nominate T. terrestris group also includes T. pinchaque; analysis of mtDNA indicates that T. terrestris and T. pinchaque are sister species (Ashley et al., 1996); T. bairdii or Tapirella group is monotypic; T. indicus or Acrocodia group is monotypic among living forms; Acrocodia separated as a genus by Eisenberg et al. (1987)  
    CITES: Appendix I under Tapiridae except for species included in Appendix II, per 2013 Checklist of CITES species: Index of CITES species published with amendments to the Appendices and changes in standard scientific nomenclature following the 16th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (Bangkok, 2013).
