Alces is a genus of ruminant mammals in the deer family, whose representatives are commonly known as elk (for Siberian and Scandinavian individuals) and moose (for North American individuals). These animals, whose antlers are flattened into a fan shape, are the largest of today's cervids.
Historically, the genus Alces was considered monotypic, comprising only the species Alces alces, itself divided into several subspecies, but some specialists now suggest that the North American and Eurasian populations should be considered as separate species, with the scientific names Alces americanus and Alces alces respectively.
The animal is called a ‘moose' in Europe and a ‘moose' in North America. The term ‘moose' comes from the Basque word oreinak, plural of orein, which is pronounced /oɾejɲak/ and would have generally meant ‘deer', ‘reindeer' or ‘caribou'. It should not be confused with the wapiti (Cervus canadensis), which is a deer (head in cape, massacre, etc.), closely related to the elaphe deer.
