287 7. Canis aureus hungaricus Éhik 1938 nec Margó 1891 etc. É h i k described 1938 (Annales Mus. Nat. Hungar. Pars Zool. 31. pp. 11—15. Budapest, 1938) the hungarian lowland jackal (the so called reed-wolf) under this name, preoccupied by Canis farni­liaris ... hungaricus used by M argó 1891, M é h e 1 y 1901, R a i t­s i t s 1924 for different hungarian races of the dog. É h i k's name major is (as „may be" name) not valid and otherwise antedated by Canis ferreo­jurassiens major Jäger 1835 and others. M o j s i s o­V i c s's Canis lupus minor from the S. region of the same lowland and therefore possibly identical with former is also preoccupied by Canis spelaeus minor Wagner 1831 and some other names. Sug­gested a distinctness of the mid-Danubian lowland form of the jackal from the form of Greece and the Balcanian peninsula (mo­reoticus Geoffroy 1835, dalmatinus Wagner 1841, graecus W a g­ner 1841, balcanicus Bru s ina 1892), its name must be changed; I propose Thos aureus ecsedensis n. nom. Distinctive characters are — compared with southern forms: greater dimensions, broader skul, „intensive brighty foxred'" colour and „black tipped hairs no­ticeably denser as in Canis aureus aureus ".
