Striped Hog-nosed Skunk Conepatus semistriatus was camera-trapped in central Panama. The photographs, taken in a densely forested area, probably belong to a single, wandering, individual. These photographs represent the easternmost record of C. semistriatus in Central America and confirm an earlier, unvouchered, report that its distribution in Panama is larger than previously thought. The record is in the centre of the 700-km wide gap between two sub-ranges, suggesting that the species has a continuous distribution across Central and northern South America.
