Abstract


Siphonops annulatus has a wide distribution in South America. Here we provide a new geographic distribution map for this species and two new records from the state of Pará, Brazil, from where it has not been reported since 1876. A specimen collected in the municipality of Senador José Porfírio is the largest specimen of S. annulatus ever recorded.
