This chapter presents the results of extensive field surveys conducted in Jujuy Province over a three-year period. It examines specimens at several collections and uses available literature to supplement information. The chapter notes that Jujuy Province supports 143 species of mammals, represented by nine didelphimorphs, ten edentates, 36 bats, two primates, 20 carnivores, one perissodactyl, eight artiodactyls, 56 rodents, and one lagomorph. It observes that one of the species is new to science, four are new for Argentina, two are new for NW Argentina, and 14 are new for the province. The chapter considers other species of mammals as probable for the province based on recent references or records it has yet to confirm; these include one xenarthran, one bat, two artiodactyls, and three rodents. It adds that two artiodactyls are probable according to historical records. The chapter conducts a biogeographic analysis using these data to determine the degree of similarity among the phytogeographic regions of Jujuy.
