|A Bawean deer|
Hyelaphus (golden deer or hog deer) is a genus of relatively small deer found in South and Southeast Asia. The four species are all threatened, and two species are restricted to a few small islands. Originally considered a subgenus of Axis, genetic evidence indicates that Hyelaphus is closer to the genus Rusa than Axis. Consequently, Hyelaphus was elevated to genus status, leaving the chital as the only member of Axis.
