          Abstract

          Herein we report the first record of the Flirtea picta Perty, 1832, harvestmen from the Atlantic Rainforest (Michelin Ecological Reserve – Igrapiúna – Bahia, Brazil). In Brazil, this study extends the distribution of the species, previously known only in Amazonas and Pará states. We collected 157 individuals in three environments: tree-fall gaps, inner forest and edge forest. A brief comment on some ecological aspects of this species is also presented.
