The Bunker's Woodrat (Neotoma bunkeri) is a species of rodent in the family Cricetidae. Only 5 specimens are known to science; these were collected in 1932 by W.H. Burt and are housed at a museum at UCLA. Neotoma bunkeri was only described from Coronados Islands, Baja California Sur, Mexico. It probably died out as a result of depletion of food resources and predation by feral cats.
