We provide a new record of Alexandresaurus camacan for the state of Bahia and a distribution map for the species. Alexandresaurus was previously known from seven localities in the state of Bahia, all in the Atlantic Forest Domain. The new record is in the Serra da Jiboia, an enclave of Atlantic Forest in the Caatinga Domain.
