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.

Figure 6: Adult Aotusnigriceps chasing adult Coendouichillus.

Mentions: Four interspecific interactions were recorded in three bridges, and they were all with Aotusnigriceps. In one of the bridges (N=2 events), an adult Aotusnigriceps chased an adult Coendouichillus (Figure 6). Coendoubicolor individuals (2 total) were also photographed in two of the same bridges used by Coendouichillus during 20 events (1 event in one bridge and 19 in the other). For five of these events, the two species used the same bridge on the same night. Their extreme difference in body size makes them easily distinguishable (Figure 7).
