Range Description

Dasypus pilosus has been recorded only from the south-western Peruvian Andes in the departments of San Martn, La Libertad, Hunuco, and Junn (Gardner 2005). It has recently been observed in the department of Amazonas (L. Bermdez Larrazbal pers. comm. 2009). However, due to the lack of field studies the exact range of this species is not known. The known localities were mapped incorrectly by Wetzel (1982), and repeated in Eisenberg and Redford (1999). It ranges from lowlands to 3,000 m Asl.
