Leopardus guttulus is a species of wild cat in the subfamily Felinae. It is found in southern Brazil and was recognized to be a distinct species in 2013; it was formerly considered to belong to L. tigrinus. At the margins of its range it interbreeds with L. geoffroyi, but it does not appear to interbreed with the population of L. tigrinus in northeastern Brazil, which in contrast has a history of interbreeding with L. colocolo.
