          Abstract

          Pseudosuccinea columella (Say, 1817) is a lymnaeid snail with great invasive capabilities, and has, at present, a worldwide distribution. So far, the presence of this lymnaeid snail in Argentina was restricted to a few provinces in the northeastern region, such as Misiones, Corrientes, Entre Ríos and some botanical gardens in Buenos Aires, but the recent discovery of specimens in central Argentina (Córdoba) not only represents the first record for the region, but also the southernmost confirmed record in the wild for the Neotropical region and the westernmost for the country.
