This is the first record of Hypsiboas lanciformis in Amapá state, extending the species distribution 278 km northeast from the municipality of Pôrto Franco, state of Pará. The record in Amapá state fills a gap in the distribution, facilitating a better understanding of the occurrence of the species, an important step for the knowledge of its distribution and conservation.

Despite that the state of Amapá has the highest percentage of protected areas in the Brazilian territory, and that 54.8% of the land are legally protected by conservation units (Drummond et al. 2008), relatively little is known regarding anurans diversity in the state (Azevedo-Ramos and Gallati 2002). This is due to the fact that studies on anuran species composition and geographic distribution in the Brazilian Amazonia are concentrated in the states of Acre, Pará, Amazonas and Rondônia (Ávila-Pires et al. 2010; Cisneros-Heredia et al. 2010; Sampaio and Souza 2010; Bernarde et al. 2011; Oliveira et al. 2012; Simões et al. 2012; Bernarde et al. 2013).
