The genus Tragelaphus contains several species of bovine, all of which are relatively antelope-like. Species in this genus tend to be large sized, lightly built, have long necks and considerable sexual dimorphism. The common eland (Taurotragus oryx) was once classified in this genus as T. oryx. The name "Tragelaphus" comes from the mythical tragelaph.. A common synonym is genus Strepsiceros which refers to the same set of African antelopes.
The genus Tragelaphus currently consists of the following species:
- Bongo (Tragelaphus eurycerus)
- Greater kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros)
- Imbabala (Tragelaphus sylvaticus) see Bushbuck
- Kéwel (Tragelaphus scriptus)
- Lesser kudu (Tragelaphus imberbis)
- Mountain nyala (Tragelaphus buxtoni)
- Nyala (Tragelaphus angasii)
- Sitatunga (Tragelaphus spekii)
