Neotomys ebriosus Thomas, 1894 (Mammalia: Rodentia: Sigmodontinae) is a monotypic genus of sigmodontine rodent restricted to the Central Andes of South America. Its distribution is inferred from a few localities; although some maps include Tucumán province, in northwestern Argentina, within the range of this species, previous records are not known. Here, we report from Cerro Muñoz (Tafí de Valle Department) the first documented record for the province.
