Herein, we provide the first record of Enyalius bilineatus for the Caatinga region, northeastern Brazil, and an updated distribution map based on literature and museum records. We collected two specimens of E. bilineatus at Serra do Barbado, northern region of the Espinhaço mountain ridge (“Chapada Diamantina” plateau complex), Bahia, Brazil. This new record extends the known geographic distribution of E. bilineatus 716 km, 462 km, and 590 km from the closest known localities in the southwest, southeast, and south, respectively.
