Map locations with a “?” icon indicate questionable species identification or location data (click on point for more information).  Sengi locations were gathered from museums, literature, and personal communications. Accuracy of species identification was not verified for most museum sources, and the precision of older locations (mostly pre-GPS receivers) is often to centroids of the quarter degree grid square system, or sometimes centroids of a farm or administrative district. The quality categories are Superb = GPS coordinates, Good usually +/- 1 km, Fair usually < +/- 3 km, and Poor > +/- 3 km or cenroids of administrative areas.
