Tibetan antelope[edit]

The Tibetan antelope has its own subfamily, yet still appears duplicated in our template within the subfamily Antilopinae, and, furthermore, within the Saigini tribe with the Saiga.

This poor Chiru needs our attention.

And the pages for the Blue Duiker and Maxwell's Duiker both put them in a separate genus in Cephalophinae from the rest of the Duikers, yet the template plops them right in with Cephalophus. We have no consistency or thought put into this, it seems to me.

There are several discrepancies among mammal articles still. They were originally created without any standard taxonomic source, but the past few years a consensus was gained to use MSW3 as reference. Unfortunately, it takes time to fix all of the articles. Most of the mammal templates have been updated and are MSW3 compliant (if you will), but I haven't gotten to this one and 4 or 5 others yet. In due time, in due time....

Good, good. I'm glad to know these things aren't ignored. Ideally, I would think these sorts of changes should almost automatically filter though all of the individual species pages and such.
