Few published records exist for the Endangered Andean mountain cat Oreailurus jacobita, a rare and little known felid restricted to high altitudes of the Andes of South America. We present 20 new records for the species, and analyse its altitudinal overlap with the sympatric pampas cat Oncifelis colocolo, a widespread habitat generalist, in north-west Argentina. Our data confirm the recent presence of the Andean mountain cat at several locations in Jujuy, Salta, and Catamarca provinces… 
Population structure and conservation of a high-altitude specialist, the Andean cat Leopardus jacobita
TLDR
The results confirm that Andean cat populations harbour extremely low mitochondrial and nuclear genetic diversity and suggest the existence of 2 evolutionarily signif- icant units (ESUs), with a latitudinal separation between 26 and 35° S.
DIETS OF THREE SPECIES OF ANDEAN CARNIVORES IN HIGH-ALTITUDE DESERTS OF ARGENTINA
Abstract We present the 1st data on the diet of the Andean mountain cat (Leopardus jacobitus), and the 1st on the colocolo (Leopardus colocolo) and the culpeo (Lycalopex culpaeus) in high-altitude
Ecological and biogeographical inferences on two sympatric and enigmatic Andean cat species using genetic identification of faecal samples
TLDR
This work determined the origin of 186 carnivore samples collected above 3000 m above sea level in northern Chile, including 33 from the Andean mountain cat and 75 from the pampas cat using diagnostic molecular genetic sequence variation, suggesting low levels of prey partitioning between species.
Bioclimatic constraints to Andean cat distribution: a modelling application for rare species
Aim  To identify the bioclimatic niche of the endangered Andean cat (Leopardus jacobita), one of the rarest and least known felids in the world, by developing a species distribution model.
Distribution of two Andean small cats (Leopardus jacobita and Leopardus colocolo) in Bolivia and the potential impacts of traditional beliefs on their conservation
We conducted field research in 1998�1999 and 2001�2002 in the high Andean and Puna eco-regions of Bolivia to estimate the distributions of Andean cat Leopardus jacobita and a similar species, the
Perceptions of Human–Carnivore Conflicts in the High Andes of Argentina
Abstract The Andean cat (Leopardus jacobitus), one of the world's most threatened felids, forms part of the little-known carnivore guild occurring in the dry areas of the High Andes. Although
How rare is the rare Andean cat?
TLDR
The results support the need for conservation measures for L. jacobita, an endemic of the High Andes, which is less homogeneously distributed than those of L. colocolo, but clear differences in abundance of sympatric populations were not detected.
Critical population status of the jaguar Panthera onca in the Argentine Chaco: camera-trap surveys suggest recent collapse and imminent regional extinction
Abstract The population of jaguars Panthera onca in the semi-arid Chaco Province is the least well-known in Argentina. Its status in the region is described only from interviews that confirmed its
How are wetlands and biological interactions related to carnivore distributions at high altitude
Abstract Determining the geographic range of species is a main objective in ecology and has implications for conservation. Key determinants of carnivore distribution in dry environments are
THE ANDEAN CAT: CONSERVATION ACTION PLAN
The Andean cat (Oreailurus jacobita) is one of the least known felines in the world and is the most threatened felid species in the Americas. The available information suggests that this species has
