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.

Activity pattern in relation to moon phase evaluated through photo events per 100 trap nights during each moon phase over the course of 13 lunar cycles. Moon phase categories are labeled in order of increasing moonlight (0 = new moon and 4 = full moon). Moon phase categories 1–3 represent data pooled for waning and waxing periods with similar moonlight (e.g. 1 = waxing and waning crescent events pooled). Bars represent the standard error of the mean.

Figure 5: Activity pattern in relation to moon phase evaluated through photo events per 100 trap nights during each moon phase over the course of 13 lunar cycles. Moon phase categories are labeled in order of increasing moonlight (0 = new moon and 4 = full moon). Moon phase categories 1–3 represent data pooled for waning and waxing periods with similar moonlight (e.g. 1 = waxing and waning crescent events pooled). Bars represent the standard error of the mean.

Mentions: Events of Coendouichillus occurred between 18:00 and 5:00 hours, with an activity peak at 20:00 (Figure 4). With regards to moon phase, there was a significant relationship between activity and phase, and there was more activity during the lower light phases (Figure 5, ρ (4)=-0.33, p=0.007).
