Three fossil forms of raccoons (Procyon priscus Leidy, 1856, P, simus Gidley, 1906, and P. nanus Simpson, 1929) are considered synonyms of P. lo tor (Linnaeus), the only species known from the Pleistocene of North America. Localities from which fossil Procyon have been reported are mapped, along with unpublished records of the genus.
