Previously known distribution.

Minas Gerais: Alagoa   , Caraí, Novo Oriente de Minas, Padre Paraíso ( Ázara et al. 2013).

Examined material.

Alagoa   : 1 male (ISLA 3983) from Túnel do Garrafão (10), 31/VIII/2008 ( Ázara et al. 2013). Caraí: 1 male (ISLA 3970) from Túnel da Fazenda Cilindro I (2), 21/VII/2008 ( Ázara et al. 2013).

Individuals of this species were recorded sparsely distributed inside the mines both in the photic and aphotic zones at a maximum distance of 36 m from the entrance. In some mines, specimens were found guarding their eggs and nymphs. This species also occurs in natural cavities in Minas Gerais state ( Ázara et al. 2013).
