The Yucutan Brown Brocket (Mazama pandora) is a small species of deer native to the Yucutan peninsula of Mexico. While it is found in humid tropical forest like other Brocket deer, the Yucutan Brown Brocket also ranges across arid, open habitats of the Yucutan. It has been treated as synonym for or subspecies of the sympatric Red Brocket (Mazama americana) in some listings. The IUCN considers "data deficient" in evaluating its status.

A study evaluating the Yucatan Brown Brocket and Red Brocket found a number of differences. The Yucatan Brown Brocket is brown to grey-brown, rather than red, has divergent antlers which are fluted when worn, and a noticeably "humped" nasal profile when compared to the Red Brocket.
