Abstract: We describe a new species of Tantilla (Serpentes: Colubridae) from the highlands ("campos rupestres") of the Serra do Cipó, Minas Gerais, southeastern Brazil. The new species belongs in the T. melanocephala group and is characterized by its uniform reddish orange dorsum with no dark middorsal stripe, a broad pale nuchal band medially divided, and a dark head cap without posterior lateral extensions. Color photographs of adult individuals and illustration of hemipenes of both the new species and T. melanocephala from the Cerrado formation south of the Amazon are provided and comparisons with congeners are made.
