The Mérida Brocket (Mazama bricenii), also known as the Merioa Brocket or Rufous Brocket,[2][3] is a small species of deer. It is found in forest and páramo at altitudes of 1,000–3,500 metres (3,300–11,500 ft) in the Andes of northern Colombia and western Venezuela.[2] It was once treated as a subspecies of the similar Little Red Brocket, but has been considered a distinct species since 1987,[1] though as recent as 1999 some maintained it as a subspecies.[4]
