We report the first known specimen of the cricetid genus Punomys for Bolivia based on an adult female captured in 1987. The specific affinities of this individual are currently unknown as it shares qualitative and quantitative characters with Punomys kofordi and P. lemminus, but also differs substantially from both species; we submit that new specimens are required to arrive to a definitive conclusion as to what species this specimen represents.
