The known geographic distribution of Hylodes lateristrigatus (Anura, Hylodidae) encloses a large portion of southeastern Brazil, but is somewhat disjunct, with no records between southern Rio de Janeiro and central Espírito Santo states. Here, we present a record of H. lateristrigatus from a site in southern Espírito Santo, filling a gap in the species’ distribution. It is likely that other areas within this range (from southern Rio de Janeiro to northern Espírito Santo) are also suitable for its occurrence, and new inventories are needed to confirm it.
