About a different point of view about Felidae phylogeny:
BININDA-EMONDS, O.R.P.; GITTLEMAN, J.L. & PURVIS, A. : Building large trees
by combining phylogenetic information: a complete phylogeny of the extant
Carnivora (Mammalia). in Biologic Reviews (1999), 74, pp.143-175. Cambridge
Philosophical Society.
There, the Cats are divided in
1. Cheetah
2. Other ones, divided into:
2.1 jaguarundi (Herpailurus yaguaroundi) + puma
2.2 other ones, divided into:
2.2.1 Asian leopard cats
2.2.2 other ones, divided into:
2.2.2.1 Serval+Caracal+Manul+Felis
2.2.2.2 other ones, divided into:
2.2.2.2.1 South American spotted cats (we call them in Brazil "maracajas")
2.2.2.2.2 other ones, divided into
2.2.2.2.2.1 Golden cats
2.2.2.2.2.2 other ones, divided into Lynxes and Big Cats
(Pardofelis+Neofelis+Snow leopard+tiger+jaguar+leopard+lion)
