Kinosternon scorpioides scorpioides is the only subspecies of K. scorpioides with a South American distribution. We report the third known register of this taxon for the state of Mato Grosso, Brazil, representing the first record from the Aripuanã River basin. This point is at 390 km and 910 km western from the two previously known records of this species in Mato Grosso, reinforcing the importance of inventories of K. s. scorpioides.
