It is commendable that the majestic Bornean clouded leopard has been proven
by DNA analysis to be a completely distinct species, Neofelis diardi
(Report, March 15). However, the role and legacy of early workers without
access to modern techniques is ignored at our peril. The Bornean clouded
leopard was first recognised as a distinct species of cat by the French
scientist Baron Georges Cuvier in 1823.
