Crossodactylus schmidti can be found in few localities of southern South America, occurring in Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. In July 2011, one specimen of Crossodactylus schmidti was found in the municipality of Taquaruçu do Sul, Rio Grande do Sul state, Brazil. This is the second record of the species for Rio Grande do Sul and extends its known distribution ca. 35 km southwest from the closest known locality Parque Estadual do Turvo, municipality of Derrubadas. This record probably corresponds to the southern limit of distribution of the species, which would allow a reassessment of its conservation status.
