The Caracal is the only species in the genus "Caracal" and you are correct that they are not closely related to animals in the genus "Lynx". The Caracal are closer related to animals in the genus "Felis".

Animals in this genus include the African wild cat and the Black-footed cat.

Well, not what I'm looking for. Recent study shows they are related to one cat that nobody has mentioned, yet.
