|Diagnosis||Diagnosis. Psilops seductus differs from P. paeminosus (data in parenthesis) by having a higher number of scale rows around midbody, 22 (17–20), a lower number of subdigital lamellae under Finger IV, 13–16 (15–20), and Toe IV, 9–11 (11–13), a lower number of total pores, 10–13 (14–16), and a red tail in adults (brown). It differs from P. mucugensis by having more scale rows around midbody, 22 (17–21), a lower number of subdigital lamellae under Finger IV, 13–16 (16-19) and Toe IV, 9–11 (11–14), a lower number of smooth subcaudal scales, 2–5 (7–14), a lower number of total pores, 10–13 (16–20), and a shorter foot, 14.8% SVL (17.6 %). Additionally, it differs from P. paeminosus and P. mucugensis in lacking calcified spines (present) and by having papillae ornamenting the hemipenial flounces (absent).|
|Comment||Habitat: 11 specimens were collected, seven in areas of continuous cerrado, three in areas of Pinus and Eucalyptus plantations, and one in a small fragmented cerrado. A single specimen (MZUSP 94703) was collected at a nearby locality, in Formoso, Minas Gerais, in Grande Sertão Veredas National Park, a large (230.714 ha) protected area at the border between Bahia and Minas Gerais. This specimen was collected in a pitfall trap within carrasco vegetation, a dense semideciduous arboreal phytophysiognomy occurring in isolated patches on top of the Serra Geral plateau, dominated by open cerrado savannas.|
