“…After erected to a species level by Passos and Fernandes (2008), the distribution of Epicrates assisi is restricted to open habitat of northeastern Brazil but it also apparently colonized disturbed habitats that once were forested (Morato et al 2011, Garda et al 2013). It is a nocturnal and terrestrial species (Rodrigues and Prudente 2011) which feeds on small mammals (Pizzatto et al 2009). …”

“…The finding of the largest number of individuals and the highest reptile richness in the inventories conducted in the Parque Nacional Serra da Capivara (CA) and Parque Nacional Serra das Confusões (CO) may result from a higher collection effort in these studies compared to surveys in other localities in the PRB (Rocha & Prudente, 2010;Rodrigues & Prudente, 2011;Cavalcante et al, 2014;Benício et al, 2015a, b;Silva et al, 2015). The CO inventory discovered and described five new species (see Table 2), which was attributed to the collection effort (Dal Vechio et al, 2016).…”

“…The collection studied includes reptiles from five municipalities in the Middle Gurguéia region (MG), southwestern Piauí: Alvorada do Gurguéia (AG) 08°27'03.6"S, 43°52'05.05"W; Cristino Castro (CC) 08°47'36.0"S, 44°12'26.2"W; Palmeira do Piauí (PP) 08°43'32.7"S, 44°14'04.5"W; Redenção do Gurguéia (RG) 09°28'24.8"S, 44°36'2.30"W, and Bom Jesus (BJ) 09°05'18.6"S, 44°19'41.4"W. Figure 1 shows these areas in the Gurguéia River Basin and eight other areas previously inventoried in the Parnaíba River Basin, used here for comparison: the municipalities of Batalha (BT; Silva et al, 2015), Barras (BR; Benício et al, 2015b), Castelo do Piauí (CP; Rodrigues & Prudente, 2011), Picos (PC; Benício et al, 2015a), and the conservation units Parque Nacional Sete Cidades (7C; Rocha & Prudente, 2010), Parque Nacional Serra da Capivara (CA; Cavalcante et al, 2014), Estação Ecológica de Uruçuí-Una (UU; Dal Vechio et al, 2013), and Parque Nacional Serra das Confusões (CO;Dal Vechio et al, 2016). Notes on the geographic distribution of reptiles of the Parnaíba River Basin are provided in the discussion.…”

“…All records fill gaps in the distribution of these poorly known species in Minas Gerais, being their first records within the mentioned priority regions for biodiversity conservation in Cerrado of Minas Gerais. (Myers and Cadle 1994;Passos and Fernandes 2002;Vitt et al 2002;Pavan and Dixo 2004;França et al 2006;Recoder and Nogueira 2007;Ribeiro et al 2008;Moreira et al 2009;Lima et al 2010;Loebmann and Haddad 2010;Mesquita et al 2011;Rodrigues and Prudente 2011); square = new record; star = type locality; red dashed line = boundaries of priority regions for conservation in the Cerrado. Ecoregions according Olson et al (2001): Tropical and subtropical moist forests; Tropical and subtropical savannas; Deserts and xeric formations; Floodplains; Tropical and subtropical dry forests.…”
