We report on species of the tribe Elapomorphini based on specimens captured during a trip to Goiás State, Brazil. Various specimens were captured in a rescue of the Hydroelectric Power Plant Serra da Mesa, in Minaçu, North of Goiás; others, in the Universidade Nacional de Brasilia, DF, in the Zoological Park, Brasília, DF, and Universidade Católica de Goiás, Goiania. Ten species were observed, representing a very important sample of the taxon, with dominance of the species Apostolepis ammodites and A. flavotorquata.
