Abstract

We report a record of the endangered Central American little spotted cat (Leopardus tigrinus oncilla) from Volcán Barú National Park in the state of Chiriquí, Panama, from a scat identified through noninvasive genetics. This record, from just below the summit of Panama's highest peak, represents the highest-elevation record for the species in Panama. Additionally, we designed new DNA primers for identification of L. tigrinus oncilla from scat samples.
