We recorded for the first time the occurrence of the mayfly genus Simothraulopsis Demoulin, 1966 in the Paraná Basin. Adults of Simothraulopsis demerara (Traver, 1947) and Simothraulopsis diamantinensis Mariano, 2010 were collected using a white sheet light trap installed on the bank of Iguaçu River, near the falls in Iguaçu National Park, Brazil. These new records significantly expand southwards the distribution of the genus.
