In the present paper we report for the first time the presence of Gundlachia radiata (Guilding, 1828), in northwestern region (Jujuy province), Argentina. Adult and juveniles specimens of this freshwater limpet were collected in two temporary water bodies. This record represents the first report of this species in Argentina but also is the southernmost point of occurrence of G. radiata in South America. As a result, the distributional range of this species is increased and the species richness of Ancylidae in Argentina is incremented to a total of seven species classified in four genera.
