Cervalces is an extinct deer genus that lived during the Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs. Cervalces gallicus, the ancestral species, lived in Europe from the Pliocene to the Pleistocene strata. Cervalces scotti, the stag-moose, lived in Pleistocene North America.[1] Cervalces latifrons, the broad-fronted moose,[2] and Cervalces carnutorum were found in Pleistocene Europe and Asia.
