<p>Clouded leopards, <span class="taxon"><em>Neofelis nebulosa</em></span>, are found south of the Himalayas in Nepal, Bhutan, and some areas of northeastern India. Myanmar, southern China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, and mainland Malaysia make up the southern parts of its geographic range. Three subspecies are recognized, occupying different regions within the range. <span class="taxon">Neofelis nebulosa nebulosa</span> is found from southern China to mainland Malaysia; <span class="taxon">Neofelis nebulosa brachyura</span> formerly lived in Taiwan but is now probably extinct; and <span class="taxon">Neofelis nebulosa macrosceloides</span> is found from Myanmar to Nepal. Until recently, <span class="taxon">Neofelis diardi</span> was classified as a subspecies of <span class="taxon"><em>Neofelis nebulosa</em></span>, but researchers studying molecular evidence now consider it to be a separate species. <span class="taxon">Neofelis diardi</span> inhabits the islands of Borneo and Sumatra.<span> (Buckley-Beason et al., 2006; Sunquist and Sunquist, 2002)</span></p> <p><strong>Biogeographic Regions: </strong>Oriental; Oriental :: Native</p>
