The Caviidae subfamily Hydrochoerinae is recognized by Wilson and Reeder
including two living genera: Hydrochoerus (two species, the capybaras, eastern
Panama southward to central Argentina), and Kerodon (two species, eastcentral
to northeastern Brazil). An introduced population of Kerodon rupestris exists
on Fernando de Noronha.
