Resumo

Juliomys pictipes is an Atlantic Forest endemic Sigmodontinae rodent. Herein we report the first records of the species in the coast of the state of Paraná, filling a gap in the species distribution. Records at low altitudes at the eastern part of the Serra do Mar confirms that the coastal mountains are not a barrier to the species distribution.
