Original text on this topic:
A second tissue sample was sent in July 1996 under the best circumstances to a laboratory in South Africa for DNA sequencing for systematic purposes. Although the analysis only had one individual to work with, the results clearly indicated a marked difference between longipes and the other black rhino subspecies. At the moment, two alleles exist in longipes which have not been found in any other black rhino subspecies (Harley, communications of 1988 and 1999).
