Bachia trisanale (Cope, 1868) 

Type-locality. From the Napo or upper Marañon  .

Pertinent taxonomic references. Cope (1868a, 1874), Peters (1871), Boulenger (1885), Vanzolini (1961b), Dixon (1973), Duellman (1978), Kohlsdorf & Wagner (2006), Freitas (2011), Teixeira et al. (2013b), Colli et al. (2015), Goicoechea et al. (2016), Ribeiro-Júnior et al. (2016).

Distribution and habitat. Bachia trisanale  is endemic of western Amazonia  , with its eastern distribution restricted to the upper Solimões, Juruá, and Purus river systems, occurring in Brazil, Peru, and Ecuador ( Fig. 3View FIGURE 3). We examined only specimens from Peru and Ecuador; record from Brazil (state of Acre) was obtained from Teixeira et al. (2013b). As usual for Bachia  , information about its ecology and habitat is scarce. Duellman (1978) found three specimens in a secondary forest; one was dug out of sandy soil; one was found in a trench; other under a rotting log in a clearing.
