We present a new country record and range extension for the snake species Bothrops taeniatus Wagler, 1824 (Serpentes, Viperidae). The specimen represents the northeastmost record in Bolivia and fills the distributional gap between the known Brazilian and Bolivian populations. There is a paucity of published information on locality data and information on this species and this account contributes to the knowledge of its distributional status.
