Comments

Comments:
Wilson & Reeder, eds. (2005): Comments: Pocock's (1917a) original classification for this subfamily placed Neofelis in the Felinae. Most recent studies have considered these taxa as a monophyletic group (Bininda-Emonds et al., 1999; Hemmer, 1978; Herrington, 1986; Johnson and O'Brien, 1997; Mattern and McLennan, 2000; Salles, 1992; Weigel, 1961). Janczewski et al. (1995) argued that separation of Neofelis and Uncia made Panthera paraphytletic
