The Guianan white-eared opossum (Didelphis imperfecta) is an opossum species from South America. It is found in Brazil, Suriname, French Guiana and Venezuela.[1]

This species, together with the Andean white-eared opossum (D. pernigra), was separated from the white-eared opossum (D. albiventris) in 2002, having been included with that species in 1993.[1]
