In the journal entitled “Natuurkundig Tijdschrift voor Nederlandsch Indië”, there has been published in 1896, T. 55, by Dr. Kohlbrugge a very interesting paper on the Mammals of the Tengger. This mountain is to be found in East Java, Residence Pasoeroean, to the north of the Semeroe or Semiroe, the highest mountain of Java. On the Tengger to the height of 7500 feet potatoes and vegetables, coffee and maize are growing. As Dr. Kohlbrugge’s paper has been published in the dutch language I translate here a part of it, dealing with a wild dog — at present after Dr. Kohlbrugge extinct —, described by him as a distinct variety under the title Canis familiaris var. tenggerana.
