Here we report new distributional data for Adenomera heyeri, a recently described species of the lowlands of the Guiana Shield. We compiled available and new occurrence data as well as the absence of records from field surveys that were undertaken in the Guiana Shield in order to evaluate the actual range of the species. We confirm that A. heyeri is potentially distributed over most forested part of the northern Guiana Shield lowlands. The pattern of distribution also reveals valuable information on the ecology of the species.
