Abstract

We report two new localities for Trachemys dorbigni that expand the southern range border for approximately 120 km. These new localities are Arroyo Buñirigo and Arroyo Zapata. Both are streams related to the Río de La Plata shoreline at Buenos Aires province, Argentina. We also record the nonnative Trachemys scripta elegans for the first time for Argentina.
