We record the first occurrence of Mecistogaster amalia (Burmeister, 1839) for the state of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil, which is the first record of this genus and family for the whole Northeast Region of Brazil. This record is based on four collected samples and extends by more than 1,500 km to the north, the area known of distribution of this species.
