The region of Rio Novo municipality, Zona da Mata region, southeastern Minas Gerais, Brazil is in the lowland Atlantic Forest domain but its current landscape is a mosaic of artificial pasturelands, secondary forest fragments and aquatic habitats. With the opportunity created by the Environmental Impact Assessment required for the construction of the Zona da Mata Regional Airport we qualitatively sampled the amphibians community in two forests fragments in this location. We recorded 20 amphibian species; some of them are not common at the rest of the Zona da Mata region of Minas Gerais State, and typical of lowland habitats in States of Rio de Janeiro and Espírito Santo States of southeastern Brazil.
