Cervus is a genus of primarily Asian deer. Although it was formerly[ a large genus with about 12 species, recent genetic studies found that the members of the genus are more distantly related to each other than previously thought, and 8 species and 3 genera (Rucervus, Rusa, and Przewalskium) split out. There are 4 species left in this genus:

* Cervus affinis - Central Asian Red Deer
* Cervus canadensis - Elk or wapiti
* Cervus elaphus - Red Deer
* Cervus nippon - Sika Deer
