TAXONOMIC NOTES Many subspecies have been described by various biologists, including lynx (most of Europe and eastward to the Yenesei River in Siberia), wrangeli (east of the Yenesei River in Siberia), orientalis (Caucasus), and isabellina (Kashmir and northward through Tibet and the mountains of Central Asia and Mongolia). We do not separate them.
