Boletim do Museu Nacional Rio de: 1-10

Bothrops muriciensis sp.nov. is described based on two adult females and a young male from The State of Alagoas, Northeastern Brazil. It is easily distinguished from all other congeneric species by the combination of the presence of a lacunolabial, 8-9 supralabials, enlarged canthals, absence of postorbital stripe, smooth intercanthal and intersupraocular scales, less than 26 interrictal scale rows, less than 156 ventrals, less than 15 dorsal blotches on body, and absence of dorsal dark spots on blotch interspaces. In superficial appearance this species resembles B. jararacussu, B. pirajaz, B. brazili, and B. sanctaecrucis, with which it seems to be closely related.
