Pecari maximus

Pecari is a genus of mammals in the peccary family, Tayassuidae.[1] The genus was monotypic until the description of P. maximus in 2007,[2] but the scientific evidence for its status as a species separate from P. tajacu has later been questioned,[3][4] leading the IUCN to treat it as a synonym.[5]
