Bachia didactyla Freitas, Strüssmann, Carvalho, Kawashita-Ribeiro & Mott, 2011 

Type-locality. Surroundings of the hydroeletric powerplant AHE Cachoeirão, Juruena River , Sapezal municipality, state of Mato Grosso, Brazil. 

Pertinent taxonomic references. Freitas et al. (2011), Teixeira et al. (2013 a), Colli et al. (2015), Goicoechea et al. (2016).

Distribution and habitat. Bachia didactyla  is endemic to enclaves of open vegetation in southern Amazonia  , occurring only in Brazil ( Fig. 3View FIGURE 3). It is known from the states of Rondônia and Mato Grosso. As usual for Bachia  and other fossorial or semi-fossorial animals, information about its ecology and habitat is scarce. Gainsbury & Colli (2003) found two specimens in a sandy cerrado enclave.
