The first Paraguayan records of the poorly known xenodontine snake Lygophis paucidens are reported. Two male specimens were collected in a mosaic habitat of Campo Sucio and Cerrado sensu stricto in the Reserva Natural Laguna Blanca, Departamento San Pedro. This is the first record of this species outside of Brazil.
