This 5th model E was generated by projecting all historical records over a new actual data set that was modified according to parameters extracted from the LGM in the following way: Variables containing information not present in the remainder were mean temperature of coldest quarter in model A, precipitation seasonality in model B, and altitude in models C and D. A recent work has modeled the past and extant potential distribution of the Patagonian weasel and found that this species is experiencing a retraction in its area of occurrence, an issue that will affect the conservation of this rare mustelid Schiaffini et al.

In this paper we report a new locality of occurrence for the species based on a photographed individual from Lihue Calel National Park, La Pampa Province. Temperature seasonality and minimum winter temperatures, together with elevation and spring precipitation, seem to be the greatest determinants of the species geographical distribution.
