Albedi Andrade-Junior, Matheus Soares França, Vinícius Sudré, Paulo Passos


We report on new voucher specimens of Epicrates cenchria to the meridional limits of itsdistribution in the Atlantic Forest. We provide data on the meristic, morphometric andhemipenial morphology features for this southernmost population. We review the recentpublished record of E. cenhria for the locality of Ipiguá, state of São Paulo, Brazil, and reidentifyit specimen herein to as E. crassus. Finally, we comment on the niche models available to E.cenchria and other congeners, suggesting outstanding issues that require additional studies.
