New antelope material from the Tatrot type locality of the Tatrot Formation, Upper Siwaliks, northern Pakistan, allows us to recognize four antelopes, i.e., Antilope intermedia sp. nov. Khan and Akhtar, Antilope subtorta Pilgrim, 1937, Antilope cervicapra (Linnaeus, 1758), and Kobus porrecticornis (Lydekker, 1878). Comparisons with A. cervicapra and A. subtorta suggest that A. intermedia sp. nov. is closely related to the black buck A. cervicapra. The new material from Tatrot confirms the idea… Expand

The subfamilies and tribes of the family Bovidae
TLDR
The crucial finding is that Caprinae link with African antelopes and that Antilopini are more remote, which is quite closely compatible with the phenetic distance analysis of the same data, provided the latter is read as if primitive or early bovids share more similarities than divergently advanced ones and hence associate more closely.
