Remarks.

Measurements of the specimens collected are similar to those of the original description, except for the longer St IV (20 in the holotype). Specimens collected in this study have the ventrianal shield longer than reported by Gondim Jr. and Moraes (2001) for specimens from São Paulo state [53 (50-58) in the latter]. This is the first record of this species in Bahia.
