This is the third in a series of papers detailing the distribution of mammalian species occurring on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. The present paper deals with 12 native species belonging to the following orders: Marsupialia, six; Insectivora, one; Primates, two; Edentata, two; Lagomorpha, one. None of these species is endemic to the peninsula, although it constitutes the major part of the geographic range of Alouatta pigra. Endemic subspecies include Didelphis virginiana yucatanensis, Marmosa mexicana mayensis, and Sylvilagus floridanus yucatanicus.
