Thomas, O., 1900. The white rhinoceros on the upper Nile. Nature 62 (1616), October 18, 1900: 599

Location: Africa
Subject: Taxonomy - Evolution
Species: White Rhino

Original text on this topic:
The discovery of Ceratotherium simum in the Nile watershed brings it geographically nearer to its European and Siberian ally, the Pleistocene R. antiquitatis, both species being in turn, no doubt, offshoots of the Pliocene R. platyrhinus of the Siwaliks.
