The small red brocket (Mazama bororo) is a small species of deer in the family Cervidae.[2] It is endemic to Atlantic Forest in Paraná, Santa Catarina and São Paulo in southeastern Brazil. This species, which only was scientifically described in 1996, is threatened by habitat loss.[1] Though its size and structure most resemble that of the pygmy brocket (M. nana), its coloration is very similar to that of the red brocket (M. americana).[3] It resembles hybrids between these two species even more closely, but differs from both, and their hybrids, in karyotype.[4]
