Abstract

Herein we report the rediscovery of the torrent frog Hylodes babax, a species considered as “Data Deficient”, based on specimens from two new localities: Parque Estadual da Serra do Brigadeiro, in the Mantiqueira mountain range, and Floresta Estadual do Uaimií, in the southern Espinhaço mountain range, both conservation units in the State of Minas Gerais, southeastern Brazil. These records are the first for the species outside of its type locality. FLOE Uaimií is also the most inland record for H. babax. Notes on its natural history and comments about biogeography in southeastern Brazil are also presented.
