Recent taxonomic classifications:
There now appear to be 37 recognised species of mongooses (with the meerkat included) in the world. The latest species to my knowledge is Herpestes palustris.
The information in this article is not exact, as there are many "grey" areas in mongoose taxonomy it seems.

Additionally mongooses now appear to fall into their own family the Herpestidae, and are no longer inlcuded in the family Viverridae (the family of civets and genets).
According to Wozencroft-1989 there are three recognised sub families now: Galidiinae; Herpestinae; Mungotinae.
However these are more commonly classed as two sub families, and exclude the Mungotinae as a sub family.
I will attempt to list the mongooses of the world in this article, please feel welcome to e-mail common names and sub species for the different species and any other information that you think would be interesting for this article to:firstname.lastname@example.org.
