Watson, J.P. 1990. The taxonomic status of the slender mongoose, Galerella sanguinea (Riippell, 1836), in southern Africa. Researches of the National Museum, 6(10): 354-492


Description:

The taxonomic status of the slender mongoose, Galerella sanguinea (Riippell, 1836), in southern Africa.

Summary / Notes:

Galerella sanguinea was investigated for intrapopulation and geographical variation in southern Africa by means of univariate and multivariate methods. The analyses of intra-population variation indicated the presence of sexual dimorphism in skull size, with males being larger than females, as well as the presence of age variation among the defined age-classes. Because of this pattern of intra-population variation only age-class-3 material could be used and sexes were analysed separately in the analysis of geographic variation. No evidence was found to justify the recognition of subspecies in G. sanguinea from southern Africa. It is proposed that all subspecies of G. sanguinea in southern Africa be regarded as synonyms of G. sanguinea cauui except for G. swalius which is regarded as a monotypic species, occurring sympatrically with G. sanguinea in the central and southern parts of South West Africa/Namibia. The results of geographic variation analyses showed that: 1) Pelage colour is very variable geographically and correlates with substrate colour and humidity. 2) An east-west decrease in skull size is present in G. sanguinea. Keyword: Galerella species taxonomy, Morphometrics, Southern Africa.
