          Abstract

          This study records a new locality and elevational record for the Near Threatened Hooded Visorbearer, Augastes lumachella (Lesson, 1838). The record was made at the highest peak in northeastern Brazil, Pico do Barbado, near Catolés within the municipality of Abaíra (Bahia). Our record increases the elevational range of A. lumachella by about 400 m and shows that this species was capable of taking refuge at higher elevations during interglacial periods, as the Pico do Barbado is the highest locality in its entire distributional range.
