DESCRIPTION A large species, standing 22-24 inches (56-61 cm) or more at the shoulder. The coat is longer, softer and finer than in the Himalayan musk deer. Coloration is dark grayish-brown above, lightening to tawny below, with more or less distinctly marked spots or stripes on the back, sides and hindquarters. There are two white stripes down the throat. Juveniles have a complex pattern of stripes and spots. Individual hairs on the upper body are whitish for the basal two-thirds of their length, becoming brownish-gray above with blackish-brown tips. The legs are longer than in other musk deer, and the metacarpal and metatarsal (foot) bones are much longer.

DISTRIBUTION Much of Siberia including the island of Sakhalin, northern Mongolia, northeastern China, and Korea.

TAXONOMIC NOTES Ohtaishi & Gao list four subspecies of Siberian musk deer: sachalinensis, moschiferus, parvipes, and anhuiensis. The last was described as a new subspecies by Wang, et al. in 1982; however, it should be noted that Groves & Feng (1986) disagree, believing instead that it is a subspecies of forest musk deer.
