In this work, we describe the first occurrence record of the exotic species of deer Axis axis (Erxleben, 1777) from natural environments of the state of Santa Catarina, southern Brazil. The study provides information about the implications of the invasion of the region’s ecosystem, which is seen as a negative factor in the local community and represents a major conservation challenge.
