Abstract1. We provide an updated distribution and dispersal rate of the introduced European rabbit Oryctolagus cuniculus in Argentina. 2. According to our results this invasive species is currently colonizing parts of Mendoza and Neuquén Provinces, where rivers are very important in the spread of the rabbits, espe- cially in unfavourable areas. The maximun rate of dispersal registered in this study was 9 km/year. 3. Some information was obtained to indicate that the presence of this exotic species threatens agriculture, livestock, forestry, and natural ecosystems of the Patagonia region
