Abstract. 1. Two new records for the Neotropical damselflies, Schistolobos boliviensis and Tuberculobasis inversa, previously known only from the Amazonia, are presented from the Brazilian Cerrado.
2. Potential distribution models for the two species were built first using only previous occurrence points from the literature, and later adding the new records. The first niche models had low capacity to predict the new records for both species. The models with with all biogeographical information increased overall distributional area for both species and indicated priority areas for inventory outside its original distribution. The results reinforce the use of modelling as a tool to increase faunal knowledge in poorly studied areas, allowing an initial evaluation of conservation status and the indication of priority areas for inventories.
