The new species occurs sympatrically with M. altirostris and adds to the following known triadal species for the region: M. baliocoryphus, M. pyrrhocryptus, M. lemniscatus, and Micrurus decoratus. Its current range is restricted to Rio Grande do Sul but it may reach adjacent areas of Argentina and Paraguay.|
