Abstract


We report a rediscovery and new occurrence of Sibynomorphus mikanii septentrionalis (Cunha, Nascimento & Hoge, 1980) in the state of Maranhão, and the first record for the state of Pará, Brazil. Those records extend the species’ geographic distribution 270 km southeast of Vitória do Mearin in Maranhão.
