This study extends the distribution of Machaeropterus striolatus in southwestern Brazilian Amazon based on two specimens deposited in the Museu Paraense Emilio Goeldi, in Brazil. One specimen came from Manoel Urbano in central Acre, and the other was obtained in the village of Fortaleza do Abunã in Rondônia. The specimen from Rondônia extends the known distribution of the species by approximately 450 km southeast of its known distribution. The records presented here indicate that the M. striolatus ranges much further into the lowlands of southwestern Amazonia than previously assumed.
