Vicugna (vicugna)

Wikipedia Abstract

Vicugna is a genus containing two South American camelids, the vicuña and the alpaca. Previously thought to be descended from the llama, the alpaca was reclassified as part of Vicugna after a 2001 paper on alpaca DNA. The paper showed that the alpaca is descended from the vicuña, not the guanaco.
