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: Our specimen represents the sixth known Coendouichillus voucher, and it substantially extends the known range of the species. All previous unambiguous records of the species were from the Amazonian lowlands of eastern Ecuador and Iquitos, Peru (Figure 9), our new record extends the range of the species approximately 900 km further south into the Peruvian Amazon. This unambiguous record of Coendouichillus from the Lower Urubamba Region of Peru confirms that this species has a much wider distribution outside of eastern Ecuador and northeastern Peru.
