Soemmerring Gazelle - Species Detail
Gazella soemmerringi berberana
DESCRIPTION The Somali Soemmerring gazelle is the largest subspecies with the longest horns. It has the darkest facial blaze, being black or dark brown rather than reddish brown.
DISTRIBUTION Djibouti: Throughout. Ethiopia: The Awash Valley; the Ogaden region, including the Webi Shebeli valley; and near Dolo on the Genale River. Somalia: The far northwest near Djibouti; south of the north coastal (Guban) mountains from about Burao eastward; along the eastern (Indian Ocean) coast from about Ras Hafun almost to Mogadishu; and in the Webi Shebeli and Juba valleys.
TAXONOMIC NOTES Includes erlangeri (Awash Valley in Ethiopia) and berberana (northern Somalia and the Ogaden region of Ethiopia), with berberana Matschie, 1893 having priority.
We follow Yalden, Largen & Koch (1984) in classifying erlangeri as a race of Somali Soemmerring (berberana) rather than of Sudan Soemmerring (soemmerringi).
