New occurrences for two Heliconius Kluk species are reported for sites in inland Bahia, Brazil. New inland sites are reported for Heliconius sara (Fabricius), a species normally found at coastal regions. To our knowledge, Heliconius besckei Ménétriés, a species restricted to cool mountain habitats, is reported for Northeastern Brazil for the first time.
