Distribution and habitat. Cercosaura eigenmanni  is endemic to southern Amazonia  , occurring in Brazil, Peru, and Bolivia ( Fig. 8View FIGURE 8). In Brazil, it is known from the states of Pará, Amazonas, Acre, Rondônia, and Mato Grosso. Cercosaura eigenmanni  is terrestrial and diurnal, inhabits primary terra firme forest (well drained and not inundated), and it is rarely found off the leaf litter (Ávila-Pires 1995; Duellman & Salas 1991; Vitt et al. 1998a). Ávila & Kawashita-Ribeiro (2011) reported specimens in an open ombrophilous forest.
