Oxyurella longicaudis (Birgei 1910), a species of Chydoridae family, is widely distributed in South and North America. Samples were collected from 40 water bodies in five conservation-priority regions in the south of Minas Gerais state, Brazil, aiming to increase knowledge about Cladocera distribution in this region. O. longicaudis was recorded in three of the 40 sampled water bodies. It is the first record of this species in the state.
