          Abstract

          Thaumastus caetensis Pena, Salgado and Coelho, 2011 is a recently described species from Serra da Piedade (19°49’19” S, 43°40’46” W), Caeté municipality, Minas Gerais, southeastern Brazil. We present a new record of this species based on a young specimen collected in the highlands of Reserva Particular do Patrimônio Natural Santuário do Caraça, at Serra do Caraça (20°08’04” S, 43°27’09” W). This species is probably restricted to the “campos rupestres”, above 1,400 m above sea level and the new record represents the only known protected occurrence within the species’ range.
