This article provides a new record for Typhlops amoipira from municipality of Bonito de Minas, state of Minas Gerais. The record extends its distribution about 500 km southern from the type locality at Ibiraba, state of Bahia. The collection site is also located on the left bank of the São Francisco River, and is dominated by cerrado sensu stricto with sandy soils, Veredas and riparian forests, in a transitional region between Cerrado and Caatinga biomes. This record confirms that the occurrence of T. amoipira goes beyond the borders of the Caatinga biome.
