The brown mongoose Herpestes fuscus is endemic to the Western Ghats and Sri Lanka [1,2], where it has been reported from wet evergreen forests and plantations. Locations within the Western Ghats where the species has been recorded from previously include Kalakkad-Mundanthurai, Peermedu, Pachchakkanam (bordering Periyar), Parambikulam, Eravikulam, the High Wavies, the Palnis, the Nilgiris, Virajpet (south Coorg), Talacauvery Wildlife Sanctuary (WLS) and Brahmagiri WLS [1,3-5,6, D. Jathanna unpublished data]. The species was reported by Prater [3] as occurring in elevations of 900 - 1850 m, but has subsequently been photo-captured using camera traps at 690 m elevation (in Brahmagiris WLS; D. Jathanna unpublished data), as low as 492 m [Parambikulam; 6] as well as at 2032 m [Eraviikulam; 6].
