Abstract: The leopard cat Prionailurus bengalensis has a widespread distribution across Asia.
We describe two recent photographic records of leopard cats from the northern Western Ghats in India. One individual was sighted and a video documented in Mahabaleshwar at 23:00 h on 19 February 2014, and two individuals were photographed in Dajipur, Radhanagari Wildlife Sanctuary at 20:49 h on 21 March 2014. These are likely to be the first photographic records from these areas in the northern Western Ghats. They are important from a conservation stand-point as the Western Ghats leopard cat population may be isolated from the rest of its range.
