We present the first record of Oxyrhopus petolarius for Departamento Itapúa, Paraguay. This record extends the species known distribution in approximately 166 km southwest from Puerto Bertoni in Departamento Alto Paraná, representing the southernmost record for the species and highlights the importance of protecting the remaining Atlantic Forest patches in Paraguay.
