Abstract


Here we add a new state record for Cercosaura olivacea in northeastern Brazil and new areas of occurrence in the state of Pernambuco and Sergipe, including the first record of this species in the Caatinga ecoregion. The new records fill a gap of more than 600 km in the distribution of this species on the east coast of Brazil and expand the geographical distribution of the species by 280 km north and 180 km south of the nearest recorded areas of occurrence.



Keywords
