The word "Mephitine" may be misspelled, and may have intended to read "Mephitinae" instead. So I replaced that word. --Markus 08:57, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Hmm. That isn't right either, but "Mephitis" is as close as can be found on Dictionary.com --Markus 09:01, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Mephitine is the adjective form of 'mephit', an old nearly-depreciated word for skunk. Compare lapine, cervine, lupine, vulpine, canine, feline, equine. Almafeta 09:06, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)
