Range Description

This species occurs from northeastern and central Brazil (Caatinga and Cerrado habitats, enclaves and transition zones) into central and southern Paraguay, east in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, and south into Uruguay and Argentina as far south as Ro Negro province in the east and the Monte Desert in west (Martin 2008). Didelphis albiventris is also broadly distributed in eastern Bolivia (Cerqueira 1985). Sympatry with D. aurita and D. marsupialis, although rare (Cerqueira 1985), has been registered in areas disturbed by humans and/or in transition zones of different biomes, such as Atlantic Forest and Cerrado, or Amazon Forest and Cerrado (Varejo and Valle 1982, Rocha et al. 2011).
