Eudorcas rufina (Thomas)

Red Gazelle (Eudorcas rufina)  

The Red Gazelle is known from three specimens that were found on markets in northern Algeria in the late 19th century, which today are kept in museums in London, Great Britain and Paris, France.

It is a enigmatic taxon which in fact might not even be a true species, it is thus treated by the IUCN as Data Deficient.
