Range DescriptionDasypus pilosus has been recorded only from the south-western Peruvian Andes in the departments of San Martín, La Libertad, Huánuco, and Junín (Gardner 2005). It has recently been observed in the department of Amazonas (L. Bermúdez Larrazábal 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.
