The status of the Pied Plover (Vanellus cayanus) in Argentina has not been thoroughly evaluated. After almost 90 years since the only Argentine specimen was collected in Misiones Province (subsequently reported lost) and a sight record from 20 years ago, we photographed a Pied Plover in Salta province and rediscovered the unique Misiones skin. The presence of the Pied Plover in Argentina could be attributed to short distance movements. We present and analyse previous records for the species in Argentina.
