    • n vulpes A genus of foxes, giving name to the Vulpinæ, whose type species is the common red fox, Canis vulpes of earlier naturalists, now Vulpes vulgaris or V. fulvus. All the vulpine quadrupeds have been placed in this genus, which, however, is now restricted by the exclusion of such forms as Urocyon (the gray foxes of America), Otocyon or Megalotis of Africa, and Nyctereutes of Japan. Even with these restrictions there are numerous species, of Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America (none in South America), closely related to the common fox; as well as the more different types represented by the African fennec. (Vulpes (Fennecus) zerda), the Asiatic corsac(V. corsac), the North American kit (V. velox), and the circumpolar isatis, or arctic fox (V. lagopus). See cuts under arctic, cross-fox, fennec, fox, and kit-fox.
