The Javan and small Indian mongooses, ranging from the Middle East to South‐east Asia, are considered as two species or as a single species, varying in size and colour from west to east. In order to clarify their systematic status and to define the limits of their ranges, Cytochrome b sequences were obtained from 27 specimens, and localities of 392 specimens from museum collections were determined. The phylogenetic analyses revealed that the Javan and Small Indian mongooses grouped in two… 
Systematics of the Southeast Asian mongooses (Herpestidae, Carnivora): solving the mystery of the elusive collared mongoose and Palawan mongoose
TLDR
The results showed that the collared mongoose is closely related to the crab-eating mongooses Urva urva, these two species forming a sister-group to the short-tailed mongoosa Urva brachyura, and suggested that Hose's mongoOSE is not a valid species.
Molecular phylogeny of the Herpestidae (Mammalia, Carnivora) with a special emphasis on the Asian Herpestes.
TLDR
The results confirmed the paraphyly of the HerPestes genus and other phylogenetic relationships, which previously had only been moderately supported, and the Asian herpestid species were found to form a monophyletic group within the Herpestidae.
Fate of the Mongooses and the Genet (Carnivora) in Mediterranean Europe: None Native, All Invasive?
TLDR
There is weak support for a deleterious impact of the mongooses and genet on the European fauna, and it is suggested that a greater attention is focused on the restoration of large Carnivores (the natural regulators of mesocarnivore populations), mesoc Carnivore communities and natural habitats, to contribute to a more sustainable way of “managing” the m Mongooses and Genet in Europe.
The Indian brown mongoose, yet another invader in Fiji
TLDR
A thriving population of the Indian brown mongoose (Herpestes fuscus) has been discovered on the island of Viti Levu in Fiji, the first known introduction of this species and may derive from a pair brought from an unknown source to a private zoo in the late 1970s.
Low genetic diversity in the masked palm civet Paguma larvata (Viverridae)
TLDR
A low genetic variability is indicated in the masked palm civet and a lack of a phylogeographic structure is suggested in this species, which do not allow inferring the geographic origin of samples of unknown origin, although it is possible to distinguish individuals from China and the Sundaic region.
Mammals of Mafia Island, Tanzania
TLDR
This paper presents collected information about the mammals of Mafia based on historical records and recent biotic surveys, and lists a total of 30 species recorded from the island, three of which are reported here for the first time.
Abundance of Indian Grey Mongoose Herpestes Edwardsii (É. Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, 1818) (Carnivora: Herpestidae) in the Bengaluru Region
TLDR
The highest abundance of mongoose was recorded from prohibited places, mostly in the rural and suburban regions, and the least in the urban region depending upon the availability of food and protected shelter in the reed beds and thickets of aquatic vegetation, particularly during the breeding season.
Small Indian Mongoose Herpestes auropunctatus (Herpestidae, Carnivora): an invasive species in Montenegro
TLDR
The southward expansion along the coastline of the Adriatic Sea has increased the previously known European range by about 150 km in the last 20 years, which could lead to catastrophic consequences for this fauna.
New insights into the systematics of Malagasy mongoose‐like carnivorans (Carnivora, Eupleridae, Galidiinae) based on mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences
TLDR
Low levels of intraspecific divergence revealed some geographical structure for the Galidiinae taxa, suggesting that environmental barriers have isolated certain populations in recent geological time.
Molecular systematics and biogeography of the Hemigalinae civets (Mammalia, Carnivora)
TLDR
The study showed that the banded and Owston’s civets are sister species, and suggested that Hose’'s civet is sister to these two, and showed a high divergence between individuals from the Mentawai Islands and those from Sumatra and Borneo.

In western parts of its native range, the small Indian mongoose (Herpestes javanicus) is sympatric with one or both of two slightly larger congeners. In the eastern part of its range, these species
Molecular systematics and origin of sociality in mongooses (Herpestidae, Carnivora).
TLDR
The results suggested unexpected phylogenetic relationships: the genus Cynictis is included in the solitary mongoose clade, and the genus Herpestes is polyphyletic, showing the potential benefit of using such characters in phylogeny.
Systematic relationships of the bushy‐tailed and black‐footed mongooses (genus Bdeogale, Herpestidae, Carnivora) based on molecular, chromosomal and morphological evidence
TLDR
The relationships within the mongooses (Herpestidae) have been recently reconsidered and two clades are shown, corresponding to the traditional Herpestinae and Mungotinae, but with Cynictis included in the former rather than the latter.
The molecular systematics and conservation of an endangered carnivore, the Owston's palm civet Chrotogale owstoni (Thomas, 1912) (Carnivora, Viverridae, Hemigalinae)
TLDR
A fragment of mitochondrial cytochrome b in 26 individuals sequenced indicated a fairly high level of genetic diversity, and the phylogenetic analysis yielded two clades supported by eight synapomorphies, suggestive of a north/south geographical divide.

TLDR
It is shown that at least two distinct geographic clades exist and were able to assess the geographic clade to which captive individuals belong and a low genetic diversity was observed among the captive population of European zoos.

TLDR
It is recommended that for the moment European mink in eastern Europe and Spain should be managed separately, and the study highlights the dangers of using a single genetic marker in defining Evolutionarily Significant Units (ESUs).
