Abstract


We update the known geographic distribution of the snake species Trilepida jani, extending its northernmost record to Parque Estadual de Grão Mogol, state of Minas Gerais, 260 km from the closest record. We also correct literature records of Trilepida koppesi from the Atlantic Forest of Minas Gerais, re-identifying the specimens as T. salgueiroi. Finally, we present a list of leptotyphlopid specimens deposited at Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais.
