Mogollon mountain wolf

The Mogollon mountain wolf (Canis lupus mogollonensis) is a possible subspecies of gray wolf whose range includes central Arizona's Mogollon Plateau region, extending eastward through the Mogollon Mountains of New Mexico. It has been described as similar to C. l. youngi, but smaller and darker in color.[2]

As of 2005,[3] it is considered a valid subspecies by MSW3, though it is classed as either a synonym of C. l. nubilus or C. l. baileyi by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.[4]
