INTRODUCTION MAMMALIA, t. 67, n° 1 · 2003 Description of a new species of genet minck, 1853), and sometimes dubia (Matschie, 1902) and hint (Rosevear, 1974). Much confusion surrounds the taxonomic status of these taxa and no studies have ever specifically tackled this question. Because type material has not often been examined incorrect taxonomy and distributional ranges have been attributed to these forms. Forest forms from the Lower Guinean Block and Upper Zaire usually associated to G. maculata include schoutedeni (Crawford-Cabral, 1970), stuhlmanni (Matschie, 1902), insularis (Cabrera, 1921) mafieldiana (Du Chaillu, I860). However, they are said to have very similar coat patterns and are not characterized by divergent morphological characters from G. maculata as is the case, for instance, when comparing G. poensis and G. pardina (Crawford-Cabral, 1970). Some authors considered G. maculata a highly polymorphic species -according to Schlawe (1980, 1981), G. pardina is a synonym of G. maculatawhereas others -e.g. Rosevear 1974 ; CrawfordCabral 198la; Crawford-Cabral and Pacheco 1992 ; see Crawford-Cabral and Fernandes (2001) for taxonomy of South African taxaexprcssed serious doubts about grouping together all these forms under a single species (in the latter case, G. pardina is a distinct species from G. maculata).
