The Upemba Lechwe "Kobus anselli" is a species of antelope found only in the Upemba wetlands in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It was described in 2005, after analysis of thirty five museum specimens collected in 1926 and 1947-8. It was previously overlooked due to its similarity to the Lechwe "K. leche", especially the Black Lechwe subspecies "K. l. smithemani".
