 The Asiatic Wild Dog or Dhole
Cuon alpinus europaeus is the name given to a number of fossil finds from the European late Pleistocene, with Cuon alpinus sardous (‘Cuon alpinus of Sardinia’) being a smaller, more delicate Mediterranean form of this.
Cuon javanicus is Mivart’s (1890) and, in his footsteps, Pocock’s (1936) unsuccessful designation for the species; today, the adjective javanicus is applied only to the Javanese race of the Asiatic Wild Dog – Cuon alpinus javanicus.
Cuon alpinus europaeus, Cuomn alpinus sardous, Cuon alpinus fossilis, Cuon priscus, Cuon dubius, Cuon dubius stehlini refer to fossil forms of the genus Cuon and are discussed briefly in the section on prehistoric distribution of Cuon alpinus.

The IUCN has called for more information on the abundance and distribution of the vulnerable Asiatic wild dog, or dhole (Cuon alpinus).
At present there are no established survey methods, and surveying is difficult because dholes live in packs where the individuals look very similar.
Whistle recognition may therefore have survey applications, but this will depend on the ease with which calls can be recorded in the wild.
