We present the first record of Dipsas mikanii Schlegel, 1837 from the state of Espírito Santo, southeastern Brazil. This species has a broad geographic distribution in eastern Brazil. We collected two specimens, one from Água Doce do Norte, a municipality approximately 90 km northeast from the nearest previously known locality in the state of Minas Gerais, and the second from Colatina, about 60 km east from the nearest record in Minas Gerais. We discuss and correct misidentified records of D. mikanii from the states of Rio de Janeiro and Santa Catarina.
