Procyonidae

Four procyonid species are known to inhabit the Yavarí-Ucayali interfluve, including the olingo ( Bassaricyon alleni ), the coati ( Nasua nasua ), the kinkajou ( Potos flavus ), and the crabeating raccoon ( Procyon cancrivorus ). All have Matses proper names, although not all Matses are aware that olingos and kinkajous are distinct species. Because olingos and kinkajous are nocturnal canopy species and the crab-eating raccoon is seldom observed, the Matses are only well informed about the natural history of the commonly encountered, diurnal, terrestrial coati.
