Abstract

Distribution notes of Bassaricyon gabbii (Carnivora: Procyonidae) for Honduras, with comments on its ocurrence in the region Bassaricyon gabbii is one of the least known species of procyonids in northern Central America. Here we describe a new record that corresponds to the third report for the country (since its last observation eleven years ago) and the southernmost for the species in Honduras. The olingo was observed in the Corralitos Wildlife Refuge in central Honduras, and is the first time it has been reported in a pine tree. All the records for Honduras correspond to core zones in protected areas, therefore, it could only depend on well-conserved forests in the country.
