The present note extends the distribution of annual killifish Austrolebias periodicus, a endangered species, endemic of the Pampas region, in Ibicuí River basin, state of Rio Grande do Sul, southern Brazil. This information is needed to develop conservation strategies for this species and its habitat, which are at high risk due to the expansion of rice production and exotic forests in southern Brazil.
