          Abstract

          We review the distributional records of Monodelphis kunsi, which occurs from eastern Bolivia, Paraguay, and northern Argentina into central Brazil. We report specimens of M. kunsi collected in the Carajás National Forest in eastern Pará, Brazil (06°03’00” S, 50°15’00” W), extending the known species range 430 km northward, into the eastern edge of Amazonia. This is the first record for the state of Pará, and the first certain record for the Amazon Region. Two adult males and one subadult female were deposited in the Museu Nacional, Rio de Janeiro.
