Resumen

FARIAS, Verónica et al. First records of 4 felid species in southern Puebla, Mexico. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2015, vol.86, n.4, pp.1065-1071. ISSN 2007-8706.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rmb.2015.06.014.

The first records of margay (Leopardus wiedii), bobcat (Lynx rufus), cougar (Puma concolor), and yaguarundi (Puma yagouaroundi) in the southern state of Puebla are presented. Field work was achieved by participative monitoring in collaboration with local authorities. A total of 11 stations of digital camera traps were set up that worked from December 18th, 2012 thru February 19th, 2014. With a sampling effort of 2,669 trap-days and with the presence data obtained it was possible to document for the first time the presence of 4 felid species for the region through 3 records of L. wiedii, 26 of L. rufus, 7 of P. concolor, and 4 of P. yagouaroundi. It was also possible to document the presence of one adult female of P. concolor with her 2 kittens. The known distribution ranges of L. wiedii and P. yagouaroundi were enlarged for central México. The identified species coexist in the tropical dry forest of San José Axuxco within the limits of Tehuacán-Cuicatlán biosphere reserve. The locality is potentially prioritary for the conservation of populations of endangered felids in the region.
