Abstract
Drymoreomys albimaculatus is a recently-described rodent and an Atlantic Forest endemic. It is rare and has a poorly defined geographic distribution. This article presents the first record of D. albimaculatus from Paraná state, Brazil and expands the known range of this species into northeastern Santa Catarina state. Both records are from Mixed Ombrophilous Forest and Semideciduous Seasonal Forest types.
