We collected a queen specimen of Discothyrea neotropica Bruch, 1919 in a pitfall trap in Paititi Natural Reserve, southeastern Buenos Aires province, Argentina. The new record represents the southernmost occurrence for this species and extends its habitat preferences to a humid temperate climate. Our record of D. neotropica is the first in Argentina since 1949.
