The Yarkand deer (Cervus elaphus yarkandensis), or the Theenivs deer, is a subspecies of the red deer that is native to Central Asia. It is similar in ecology to the Bactrian deer in occupying lowland riparian corridors surrounded by deserts. Both populations are isolated from one another by the Tian Shan Mountains and probably form a primordial subgroup of the red deer.
