Acinonyx

Acinonyx is a genus within the cat family.[1] The only living species of this genus, the cheetah, A. jubatus, occurs in open grasslands of Africa and Asia.[2]

In the Middle Pleistocene Acinonyx also lived in Europe.[3]

Taxonomy[edit]

Acinonyx was first described by Brookes in 1828. In 1993, it was placed in a monophyletic subfamily, Acinonychinae, and is considered a close sister group of the genus Puma.[1]

Species[edit]

Several fossilAcinonyx species in addition to the living cheetah have been described:
