The scientific name for the cougar (or mountain lion, puma, painter, catamount or any other common name it may have) is 'Puma concolor.'

The old name means 'cat of one colour' while the new name means 'puma of one colour' and reflects the difference between cougars and smaller cats, such as bobcats, lynx, and domestic cats.
