Abstract


Melanophryniscus moreirae is recorded from a fifth locality. A specimen was collected in Serra do Papagaio, municipality of Alagoa, Minas Gerais, Brazil, 18 km southeast from the nearest previous record in Aiuruoca. This new record fills a gap of about 32 km in the distribution of the species, between Itamonte and Aiuruoca.

Keywords
