Members of the genus are found worldwide and include the jungle cat (Felis chaus) of southeast Asia, European wildcat (F. silvestris silvestris), African wildcat (F. s. lybica), the Chinese mountain cat (F. bieti), and the Arabian sand cat (F. margarita), among others.

Wildcats have also been referred to as various subspecies of F. catus,  but in 2003, the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature fixed the name for wildcats as F. silvestris.  The most common name in use for the domestic cat remains F. catus, following a convention for domesticated animals of using the earliest (the senior) synonym proposed.
