Sylvilagus andinus (Thomas, 1897) is a highland lagomorph from the Ecuadorean Paramos. Its distribution was ten-tatively believed to extend to northwestern Peru on the basis of ecological niche modeling and the inclusion of the Peruvian S. capsalis Thomas, 1913 as a synonym. Here, we confirm the occurrence of S. andinus in Peru by a mor-phological examination of seven new records from northwestern Peru and one new record from Ancash department in central Peru.
