TypesHolotype: IBSP 78572 (field number CC58), male, collected 11 August 2010 by F.C. Centeno and T.H. Condez, (Figs. 2–4A). We deposited a tissue sample at the herpetological collection of MZUSP.
Paratypes.—Twenty specimens from the type locality: IBSP 18866–67, males; IBSP 18868, female; IBSP 18870–71, females; IBSP 18872–73, males; IBSP 18874–75, females; IBSP 18876–77, males; IBSP 18879–81, fe- males; IBSP 18882, male, and ZUEC 3551 female, collected March 1960 by A.R. Hoge (Instituto Butantan expedition); MZUSP 3949 female, MZUSP 3951 male; MZUSP 3952 female, and ZUEC 3550 male, collected 14– 28 March 1964 by the Departamento de Zoologia (DZ) expedition. 
EtymologyEtymology.—The specific epithet otavioi honors our friend and colleague Otavio A. V. Marques, a prominent herpetologist at the Instituto Butantan, for his great contribution to the study of natural history and conserva- tion of Brazilian snakes. We suggest the standard English name ‘‘Vito ́ria’s Lancehead’’ for the new species.
