A new record of the Critically frog Insuetophrynus acarpicus was discovered in Chile from a site lying 66 km southwest from the southernmost locality reported for the species. This new population is the first occurrence of the species in a protected area, and considerably extends the geographical and altitudinal range of I. acarpicus, one of the most endangered frogs in the world.
