This survey is based both on previously published data and on as yet unpublished studies of material from the Orange Free State and from the south-western Cape Province preserved respectively in the National Museum, Bloemfontein, and the South African Museum, Cape Town. Four faunal stages have provisionally been recognised in the Pleistocene of southern Africa: the Sterkfontein, Swartkrans, Cornelia and Florisbad stages. Comprehensive assemblages of antelope material are available from the Sterkfontein, Cornelia and Florisbad stages. The genera, extinct as well as surviving, represented in these assemblages can be provisionally distributed in seven groups, which are ranked, as tribes rather than subfamilies.
