Allen & Barbour, 1937
The Newfoundland wolf (Canis lupus beothucus) was a possible subspecies of gray wolf native to Newfoundland. It was described as being a medium-sized, slender-skulled wolf with a white pelt, though melanists also occurred. In comparison to its mainland relatives it bears a striking difference in its internal accessory cusp angles allowing for distinction between subspecies.The last specimen was reportedly killed in 1911.
