The maned wolf (Chrysocyon brachyurus, Illiger 1815) is the largest canid in South America. The objective of this work is to present a new border registry of Chrysocyon brachyurus, in the Department of Gualeguay, Province of Entre Ríos (32°59'51.78''S, 59°30'59.12''W); validate its membership in that taxon through the use of the COI molecular marker and review and comment on recent reports of specimens recorded further south of the known range of the species in a conservation context.

Chrysocyon brachyurus, run over, molecular identification, COI, recent expansion, border and extralimitary records.
