Urostrophus vautieri (Leiosauridae) is a Brazilian endemic lizard occurring in southeastern and southern Brazil. At the southern portion of its range, in state of Paraná, this species was recorded in the municipalities of Campo do Tenente, Curitiba and Ribeirão Claro. Here I report the collection of four specimens of U. vautieri in the municipality of Telêmaco Borba, Paraná, a locality ca. 140 km southwest from the nearest previously known site in the state.
