The Chadwick Beach Cotton Deermouse was a subspecies of the Cotton Deermouse (Peromyscus gossypinus (Le Conte)) that was restricted to a small area along the coast of southwestern Sarasota County in Florida, USA.

The subspecies was described in 1939, apparently from specimens collected one year earlier, it was never found again and is now thought to be extinct.
