A. datoadeni was a prehistoric and now extinct species of Impala. A. datoadeni was essentially the same as A. melampus, though was significantly smaller. Today the species A. melampus is still alive in Africa, and it can be further dived into two sub species; A. melampus melampus and A. melampus petersi (a.k.a. Black-faced Impala).
