Abstract


Pleurodema bibroni is a leiuperid frog known from open habitats in Uruguay and Southern Brazil. This paper provides the first record from state of Paraná, Brazil, and extends the distribution of the species approximately 250 km northwest from the nearest record. The specimen was found in Refúgio de Vida Silvestre dos Campos de Palmas, a federal reserve in southwestern Paraná state created to protect the grasslands, and represents an important record, since the species is considered to be Near Threatened according to IUCN criteria.
