Resumen

In July 2021, an albino Amazonian long-tailed porcupine of the species Coendou (Coendou) longicaudatus was observed in the vicinity of the Samuel Dam lake in the Amazon region of Rondônia, northern Brazil. To the best of our knowledge, this individual, an adult found upon a dead tree near the lake shore, is the species' first record of albinism.
