Notes

  1. ^ The supposed African Pygmy Elephant (Loxodonta (africana) pumilio or Loxodonta fransseni) is indistinguishable from the normal African Forest Elephant on a population genetics level. It appears to be a local morph. See reference.
  2. ^ The elephant population in Vietnam and Laos is undergoing tests to determine if it is a fifth living subspecies.
