Abstract

The family Anguidae contains three subfamilies: Gerrhonotinae, Anguinae, and Diploglossinae. In Brazil, there are four described anguid species, all from the subfamily Diploglossinae. Herein, we present the first records of Diploglossus lessonae Peracca, 1890 from the state of Sergipe and new records for the states of Paraíba and Ceará. The records compiled here for the Caatinga can reveal a pattern of widely distributed species in the biome.
