Percy Eld, a British officer who was attached to the residency at Manipur. The three subspecies of the Eld’s deer are: Panolia eldii eldi: The Manipuri brow-antlered deer is found in Manipur, India. It is called sangai in Meitei.P. e. thamin: The Burmese brow-antlered deer found in Myanmar, and westernmost Thailand.P. e. siamensis: The Thai brow-antlered deer is found in Cambodia, China, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam, and should perhaps be treated as a separate species. The population on the Chinese island of Hainan is sometimes considered another subspecies, P. e. hainanus, but this is not supported by genetic evidence. It was described by Lydekker in 1915.
