Thomas Hardwicke’s collection of illustrations of Indian wildlife comprises the first drawing of a Himalayan jungle cat, which the British zoologist John Edward Gray named the "Allied cat" Felis affinis in 1830.
In the 1930s, the British zoologist Pocock reviewed the Natural History Museum's jungle cat skins and skulls from British India and adjacent countries. Based mainly on differences in fur length and colour he subordinated the Himalayan specimens to Felis chaus affinis.
