Tlacuatzin canescens is found in the neotropical region. Grayish mouse opossums are endemic to Mexico (Zarza, Ceballos and Steele, 2003). They are found along the western and southern coasts of Mexico, from the Baja peninsula to the Yucatan peninsula (Nowak, 1991; Zarza, Ceballos and Steele, 2003). Isolated populations occur on the Tres Marias Islands off of the Nayarit coast (Zarza, Ceballos and Steele, 2003). Some evidence suggests that this species also occurs in Guatemala; however it has not yet been confirmed there (Voss and Jansa, 2003).
