|Blackbuck antelope of India|
|Cladistically included but traditionally excluded taxa|
Antelope comprise a wastebasket taxon (miscellaneous group) within the family Bovidae, encompassing all Old World ruminants that are not bovines, caprines, deer, or giraffes. One New World species, the pronghorn of North America, is sometimes colloquially referred to as the "American antelope", but they are more distantly related to the giraffidae family. The "true antelope" are the gazelle, Nanger, Eudorcas and Antilope.
