Sometimes called hard-ground barasingha, southern barasingha or central Indian barasingha. Subspecific name is in honor of naturalist A. A. Dunbar Brander.

DESCRIPTION This subspecies is adapted to an environment of dry meadows and woodlands, with hoofs that are smaller and more closely knit than those of the swamp race. The skull is larger and the antlers are darker and more widely spread. The summer coat is lighter in color, but the winter coat appears somewhat darker. Longest antlers of record are 42-1/2 inches (108.0 cm) (Rowland Ward, 1921).

BEHAVIOR Requires large, grassy plains or maidans for grazing. Lives along the edges of these plains, only penetrating the jungle-covered hills for a short distance. Shows no special dependance on water. The rut is mainly between mid-December and mid-January. A single fawn is born after a gestation period of 8 to 8-1/2 months. A female bears her first fawn when about three years of age, and one each year thereafter.

DISTRIBUTION India, where it was formerly widespread south of the Ganges River in the Central Provinces and perhaps Orissa, but now found only in and around Kanha National Park in Madhya Pradesh.
