          Abstract

          We recorded three individuals of Abrawayaomys ruschii Cunha & Cruz, 1979 in Chapecó, Santa Catarina state, expanding the known geographic distribution of the species in approximately 370 km west from its nearest locality. It is the second record of the species in this type of physiognomy, characterized by the transition of Seasonal Deciduous and Mixed Ombrophilous forests. Additionally, this is the closest record, about 200 km east, from the recently described Abrawayaomys chebezi Pardiñas, Teta & D’Elía, 2009.
