          Abstract

          Philodryas agassizii is an endangered snake of shrubland and grasslands well preserved in Argentina, Paraguay, Brazil, and Uruguay. In the southeastern area of its range, this snake was only found associated with highland grassland of the Tandilia and Ventania mountain systems, Argentina. In this work, we described six new records of Philodryas agassizii from the Tandilia Mountain System, which represent four new localities for the species. These records extend the known range of Philodryas agassizii in the Tandilia mountain system, 100 km from the closest previously known site.

            Philodryas agassizi (Jan, 1863) (Squamata: Dipsadidae): distribution extension

            We provide the first record of Philodryas agassizi from Río Negro province, as well as the southernmost record from La Pampa Province, central Argentina. The record from Río Negro province extends the geographic distribution range of this species by approximately 180 km south.
