Sokolov et al. (1992b) gave convincing arguments that two separate species exist: Capreolus capreolusLinnaeus 1758 and Capreolus pygargusPallas 1771. The first species has no subspecies division, the second one includes: C. p. pygargusPallas 1771 (Volga area, Ural Mountains, N Kazakhstan, Siberia to E Baikal lake, Altai Mountains, Yakutia) and C. p. tianschanicusSatunin 1906 (S Kazakhstan, Tien Shan Mountains, Transbaikal, Far East).
