          Abstract

          We report the southernmost record for the octodontid rodent T. barrerae, which is also the second recording locality for this species in Patagonia. The new locality is placed in S Neuquén province, extending the known range of the species about 150 km SW from the nearest previous record. Although T. barrerae is considered a highly specialized rodent of salar flats in Monte desert, the record reported here came from an arbustive rocky environment belonging to the Monte- Patagonia ecotone.
