The modification of land use has caused the loss, fragmentation and degradation of the scarce remnant of native forest present in south-central Chile, habitat of marsupials of the genus Dromiciops (Microbiotheria). In this study, we explored the presence of Dromiciops through camera traps in a relict area of coastal mediterranean sclerophyllous forest. The presence of Dromiciops was recorded in four of the nine sites evaluated. This finding corresponds to the first formal record of Dromiciops in this area.
