In the present study, the geographic distribution of Bibimys labiosus is extended 297 km to the west of Lagoa Santa, Minas Gerais state, on the basis of two adult specimens, one male and one female, captured in areas of the Cerrado biome with pitfall traps. The new record represents the westernmost limit for this species, emphasizes the need of additional sampling in order to improve the knowledge on the distribution of this still poorly known sigmodontine species.
