1. Madoqua g. guntheri, see species (Somalia and Ethiopia)
2. Madoqua g. wroughtoni (central Ethiopia)
3. Madoqua g. hodsoni (southern Ethiopia)
4. Madoqua g. smithi (northern Kenya)
Remarks: 4 subspecies of Madoqua guntheri in only one region may be doubtful; a revision of the classification and distribution is needed. The population status is also unknown but due to warfare and drought in Ethiopia, it must be feared that a drastic decrease of these dik diks may have occurred.
