dc.description.abstractMeasurements obtained from Equus burchelli and E. quagga specimens in various museum collections are compared against corresponding measurements on equid teeth from Holocene deposits at Wonderwerk cave, situated near the N limit of the historically known distribution of the partially striped (now extinct) E. quagga and near the S limit of E. burchelli. Entoflexid length of the 4th lower premolar appears to be a potential parameter for distinguishing the 2 taxa. Results support a suggestion that E. quagga may have been a S variant of E. burchelli, rather than a distinct species.-Author
