Abstract

In 2012, we conducted a mammal survey in the cloud forest of the Otonga Forest Preserve on the western slope of the Andes in Cotopaxi Province, Ecuador. We used Sherman traps, Tomahawk traps, pitfall traps, and mist nets to collect mammal specimens at 2,070 m in elevation. We collected 148 specimens representing 19 species from the survey area. The species collected include Caenolestes convelatus, Marmosops caucae, Sturnira bidens, Sturnira erythromos, Sturnira ludovici, Anoura caudifer, Anoura peruana, Platyrrhinus dorsalis, Platyrrhinus nigellus, Myotis oxyotus, Mazama rufina, Melanomys caliginosus, Neusticomys monticolus, Thomasomys baeops, Thomasomys silvestris, Nephelomys moerex, Dasyprocta fuliginosa, and Bassaricyon neblina. We documented Notosciurus granatensis with photography.
