          Abstract

          The presence of the Jaguarundi, Herpailurus yagouaroundi, west of the Peruvian Andes have not been considered in recent studies due to lack of evidence. We document its presence in the Laquipampa Wildlife Refuge, on the western slope of the Peruvian Andes, using camera traps. The closest previous record was approximately 129 km north, in a montane forest of Amazonas region on the eastern slope of the Andes. It is imperative that further research is conducted on carnivore species west of the Peruvian Andes to better understand the distribution of lesser known species such as the Jaguarundi.
