    Species Topi
    (Burchell, 1824)

      jimela (Matschie, 1892)
    Topi occurred in south-west Kenya, northwest and western Tanzania, east and south-western Uganda, north-eastern Rwanda, and the eastern floodplains and savanna grasslands of Burundi. Topi are now extinct in Burundi.
      korrigum (Ogilby, 1837)
    Korrigum formerly occurred from southern Mauritania and Senegal to western Chad, but has undergone a dramatic decline since the early 1900s because of displacement by cattle and uncontrolled hunting for meat. The species no longer occurs in Mauritania, Mali, Senegal, or The Gambia, and they probably no longer occur in northern Togo, Nigeria or western Chad, except as vagrants.
      lunatus (Burchell, 1824)
    Tsessebe remain present in a number of populations in southern Africa, but became extinct in Mozambique around the late 1970s or early 1980s. They have been reintroduced in Swaziland, after the indigenous population was exterminated. Found in northern Botswana, eastern Angola, northeastern Namibia, westernmost Zambia, Zimbabwe and northernmost South Africa.
      superstes Cotterill, 2003
    Bangweulu Tsessebe occur in the Bangweulu Flats of northeastern Zambia and are now extinct in the Katanga Pedicle of DR Congo
      tiang (Heuglin, 1863)
    Tiang occurs throughout southern Chad, northern Central African Republic, and Sudan to south-western Ethiopia and extreme north-western Kenya.
      topi Blaine, 1914
    Coastal Topi formerly occurs in southern Somalia in riverine grasslands on the lower Shebelle and Juba Rivers and the area around Bush Bush N.P., and in Kenya in Lamu, Garissa and Tana River districts. Their range is unchanged in Kenya, although there is no information available from Somalia.

    This species formerly occurred widely on floodplains and other grasslands in sub-Saharan Africa. It was one of the most numerous large antelope species in Africa, but has been eliminated from much of its former range. Various populations have become very rare and it has disappeared from Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Senegal, The Gambia, and Burundi (IUCN).
