The genus Physalaemus is distributed east of the Andes, from northern to southern South America. Physalaemus cicada is a terrestrial species with wide distribution, found mainly in the Caatinga domain, but also in the Cerrado and Atlantic Forest. Herein we present a distribution extension with a new southernmost record for the species in Minas Gerais state (municipality of Belo Horizonte), as well as a geographic distribution map.
