The Central American Agouti (Dasyprocta punctata) can be found from Chiapas and the Yucatan Peninsula (southern Mexico), through Central America, to northwestern Ecuador, Colombia, and far western Venezuela. A highly disjunct population is found in southeastern Peru, far southwestern Brazil, Bolivia, western Paraguay, and far northwestern Argentina. The disjunct population has been treated as a separate species, the Brown Agouti (Dasyprocta variegata).
