The state governments in China have laid down laws for protecting rare and endangered species, but the effective protection depends on accurate species identification. In this study, we developed one new Felidae-specific probe, pta1 probe and tested 138 skin samples from 14 species and subspecies. The results revealed that the pta1 probe succeeded in identifying all feline species in China due to species-specific “fingerprints”. As a result, we constructed a fingerprint management archives for Felidae family in China. It can provide forensic evidence of poaching for judicial organization, which have a profound effect on criminal activities of poachers, and therefore help to protect wild animals and conserve biodiversity.
