Common or RingedWaterbuck

Kobus ellipsiprymnus ellipsiprymnus

Cobe à croissant (F), Ellipsenwasserbock (G), Antilope acuatico común (Sp). The name "common waterbuck" is misleading because

this subspecies is less numerous and much less extensively distributed than the defassa races; however, that is what most people call it. Ringed waterbuck would be a more accurately descriptive name.

DESCRIPTION The general color is grayish brown, lighter on the flanks and sometimes blackish on the back. There is a long, white stripe above and before the eyes, the end of the muzzle is white, and there is a white color under the throat. A conspicuous white ring on the rump encircles the tail; no other antelope has such a marking.

DISTRIBUTION The Webi Shebeli river valley in southeastern Ethiopia; the Juba and Webi Shebeli river valleys in Somalia; essentially east of the Rift Valley in Kenya and Tanzania; east of the Rift Valley in the middle Zambezi and Luangwa valleys in Zambia; Malawi; Mozambique; east of the Kwando River in the Caprivi Strip of Namibia; eastern and northern Botswana; Zimbabwe; and eastern and northern Transvaal in South Africa. Its distribution slightly overlaps that of the typical defassa along the Rift Valley in Kenya and Tanzania, and that of the Crawshay defassa in the Rift Valley in Zambia. 

TAXONOMIC NOTES Includes ellipsiprymnus (southern Africa),  kondensis (southern Tanzania), pallidus (Webi Shebeli drainage in Ethiopia, and Juba and Webi Shebeli drainages in Somalia), and thikae (southern and eastern Kenya and northeastern Tanzania), with ellipsiprymnus Ogilby, 1833 having priority.
