This report reveals that the coyote, Canis Iatrans, has recently extended its southern range to Panama. The skin of one adult female coyote killed by hunters at Los Pirales, a farm near Gualaca in Chiriqui Province, western Panama, has been deposited in the Gorgas Memorial Laboratory Vertebrate Collection. In the same province, other coyotes have been observed in Alanje, Boquete, and Boqueron. The probable coyote range in Panama is indicated, and the need for an urgent management strategy for this canid in the Republic is also expressed.
