The goal of this study was to contribute to the knowledge of the mammals in the state of Espírito Santo, presenting a list to the Domingos Martins municipality. Regarding the mammals inventory, data obtained from field work and through digital search by species deposited in scientific collections and available on the SpeciesLink database were used. We recorded 47 non-volant mammal species, including 12 endemic in the Atlantic Forest and nine listed as threatened. Domingos Martins, despite being undersampled when compared to other mammals inventories in the state of Espírito Santo, represents 57% of the terrestrial mammals listed in the state. This shows the potential of the municipality in relation to mammal conservation, not only in the state, but also for Atlantic Forest biome.
