We describe a new species of the poorly known genus Calamodontophis from the state of Paraná, Southern Brazil. The new species is compared with C. paucidens and species of related genera. We provide comments on the generic relationships of Calamodontophis within the xenodontine radiation, as well as on the behavioral, feeding, and reproductive aspects of the biology of the group.
