Here is a breakdown of locations that use the term "panther" and to what cat species it applies to:

  • Leopard (black-colored variation; used almost universally)

  • Jaguar (black-colored variation; used frequently)

  • Puma The word panther as applied to pumas is most often used in the southeast United States as a reference to a rare subspecies of puma known as the Florida panther.

Panther is also a codename for the next major version of MacOS - 10.3. The current version, 10.2, is known by its codename Jaguar.
