DESCRIPTION Said to be much smaller than other Asian wapitis, with head and body length of about 94 inches (240 cm) measured over the curves, and shoulder height of 50-51 inches (127-130 cm). Overall color is a very uniform grayish-brown, with no darkening on head and legs, but gradually lightening toward the belly. There is a wide, dark brown belly stripe. The rump patch is very large, brownish-white in color with no dark border, and is split by a broad but indistinct stripe that extends almost to the root of the tail. The tail is the same color as the rump patch. According to Flerov, the antlers are slender, with massive fourth tines, and are typical in form for a wapiti.

DISTRIBUTION Found only in China, in the Alashan range of southeastern Inner Mongolia. This subspe-cies is little known to Western science, with the only known specimens said to have been collected by Przewalski in 1874.
