A new record of Tragulus versicolor (Artiodactyla, Tragulidae) from Vietnam, and its sympatric occurrence with T. kanchil.
Kuznetsov G.V., Borissenko A.V.
P. 9-13
The first record of Tragulus versicolor Thomas, 1910 outside its type locality is described. One specimen was collected in the vicinity of Dak Rong and Boun Luoi, ~20 km north of Kan Nack (Gia Lai Province, Central Vietnam), collected in 1990 and deposited in the Zoological Museum of Moscow University. Peculiar external characters (pelage coloration pattern) indicate its authenticity from the sympatrically occurring T. kanchil (Raffles, 1821). Certain aspects of morphological differences between the two species and conservation issues relevant to the new finding are being discussed.
