Abstract

Four species of Pseudopaludicola, Pseudopaludicola boliviana, P. falcipes, P. mystacalis and P. ternetzi, are usually cited for Paraguay. However, after analyzing 407 specimens assigned to this genus in herpetological collections of the country, we conclude that there are no specimens of P. falcipes in Paraguayan collections or vouchers cited in the literature, and almost all individuals referred to P. ternetzi are most probably P. ameghini. At the same time, a recently described species, P. motorzinho, is recorded for the first time in the country. Information on the distribution of these and the remaining species of Pseudopaludicola in Paraguay (P. boliviana and P. mystacalis) is provided.
