Bottom Line: Coendouichillus was first described in 2001 by Voss and da Silva, with a range from Amazonian Ecuador to Iquitos, Peru.We conservatively estimate that 17 individuals were photographed, including one juvenile.Being 900 km away from Iquitos, Peru (the site of the closest record), discovery of this species in the Lower Urubamba constitutes a significant range extension.

ABSTRACT
Coendouichillus was first described in 2001 by Voss and da Silva, with a range from Amazonian Ecuador to Iquitos, Peru. Here, we describe an adult female Coendouichillus specimen collected in a Tomahawk trap in the forest canopy of the Lower Urubamba Region of Peru in October 2013. We also describe pathologies and behaviors observed through 379 camera trapping photo events (2,196 photos) gathered in natural canopy bridges over the course of a year (7,198 trap nights), including information on activity period over the course of the day and over the course of the lunar cycle. We conservatively estimate that 17 individuals were photographed, including one juvenile. Being 900 km away from Iquitos, Peru (the site of the closest record), discovery of this species in the Lower Urubamba constitutes a significant range extension.

Mentions: The study site is in the Lower Urubamba Region, adjacent to the confluence of the Camisea and Urubamba Rivers (11°43.28'S, 72°56.52'W (DDM), Figure 1). The study area is in predominantly primary forest between 450–500 m with three major habitat types: terra firme, riverine terrace, and mixed upland (Comiskey et al. 2001). It is near the Pluspetrol-controlled Pagoreni A natural gas well and the pipeline that connects the well to the Malvinas processing plant. The site is also near the Matsigenka communities of Camisea and Shivankoreni and is not part of the national system of protected areas, for which reason subsistence hunting of wildlife is legal.
