Prionyx pumilio (Taschenberg, 1869) was recorded in Argentina, Peru, Chile and Brazil (in state of Goiás), the last report being questioned in the past. The present note extends the distribution of P. pumilio to northeast Brazil, in state of Paraíba, so, the record from Goiás must not be considered doubtful. The present finding indicates that P. pumilio is associated with dry ecosystems at least in part of its geographic distribution.
