The present note is the first record of the pike cichlid Crenicichla tendybaguassu for Uruguay, extending its distribution about 400 km to the South. The presence of C. tendybaguassu and their co-occurrence with other priority species for conservation in Uruguay adds greater value to conservation of the Cuareim River (Middle Uruguay River). Coloration of live breeding females is described for first time.
