The presence of L. Field studies should provide complementary information to test for niche overlap and other ecological aspects of these poorly studied species. A recent work has modeled the past and extant potential distribution of the Patagonian weasel and found that this species is experiencing a retraction in its area of occurrence, an issue that will affect the conservation of this rare mustelid Schiaffini et al.
