The fair brocket (Mazama tienhoveni), also known as the white brocket deer or veado branco to locals, is a possible species of brocket deer from the south-central Amazon near the Aripuanã River in Brazil.[1]

The coloration of the fair brocket is characterized by an overall light brown, grading toward almost white on the sides and ventrally, in contrast to the situation where the dorsal parts of M. americana are of a (deep) reddish-brown color, grading ventrally into a more rusty color, and those of M. nemorivaga are dull or pale yellowish or grayish brown to chestnut brown, grading ventrally into yellowish or whitish.[1]
