Pecari is a genus of mammals in the peccary family, Tayassuidae. The genus was monotypic until the description of P. maximus in 2007, but the scientific evidence for its status as a species separate from P. tajacu has later been questioned.
Species[edit source | edit]
- Pecari maximus Roosmalen et al., 2007 – Giant Peccary (Brazil)
- Pecari tajacu Linnaeus, 1758 – Collared Peccary (Southwestern United States, Mexico, and Central and South America)
