Until today the False Smooth Snake (Macroprotodon cucullatus) was referred to as occurring to the south of the river Tagus and in Lisbon's region. In this paper we describe two specimens of this species captured recently to the north of the river Douro. We succintly characterize the region where they were found and the local herpetocoenosis. A few considerations are made about the feeding habits of the snake, and we discuss the hypothesis of these two new specimens forming part of a relict population.
