Authors and dates of publication of family-group names based on extant bovids are reviewed. Tragelaphini is found to be attributable to Blyth, 1863, not Jerdon, 1874; Cephalophinae to Blyth, 1863, not Gray, 1871; Reduncinae to Knottnerus-Meyer, 1907, not Lydekker and Blaine, 1914; Alcelaphinae to Brooke in Wallace, 1876, not de Rochebrune, 1883; Hippotraginae to Sundevall in Retzius and Lovén, 1845, not Retzius and Lovén, 1845, or Brooke in Wallace, 1876; Naemorhedini to Brooke in Wallace, 1876, not Pilgrim, 1939; and Ovibovini to Gray, 1872, not Gill, 1872. The authors, dates, and original spelling for other names also must be corrected. Hippotraginae must be validated by dating the genus Hippotragus from Sundevall in Retzius and Lovén, 1845, with type by monotypy H. equinus, not from Sundevall, 1846. Adenotinae (and Eleotraginae), Connochaetini, Nesotragini, Strepsicerotini, Sylvicaprinae, and Tetracerini are senior synonyms of Reduncinae, Alcelaphini, Neotragini, Tragelaphini, and Boselaphini, respectively. Neotragini and Reduncinae are nomena protecta and are to be used in preference to their less familiar senior synonyms. Until their validity is confirmed, Boselaphini, Tragelaphini, Cephalophinae, and Alcelaphinae also are to be employed in preference to their senior synonyms. If required, Connochaetini can be treated as a tribe of Alcelaphinae despite its seniority.
