It felt weird to see only Serra do Mar and Serra do Espinhaço in Brazil, because we call lots of highlands "Serra" (literally means range). The one I missed the most was the Mantiqueira Mountains, but they are kinda the same range of Serra do Mar, separated by a graben. Anyway, geographer rambling here :p I'm looking that database as soon as I can to see why he didn't consider most of that Serras.
The Brazilian ranges I included weren't actually from that database, I added them because I wasn't quite satisfied with its level of detail in that region. It's very hard to get reliable information on mountain ranges from a place you're not from, because divisions are so often colloquial rather than geographical. I spoke to the one Brazilian I know in choosing ones to add, but I'd very much welcome your feedback for further ranges that should be added/changed. The more primary sources I can get, the better!
BUT, based on my knowledge, I would say you should include Mantiqueira Mts (between Serra do Mar and Espinhaço), Pacaraíma Mts (they are the most known from Guyana Plateau. but maybe the Plateau as a whole could be included - not sure about that tho), Serra Geral (in the very south, close to Uruguay) and the Borborema Plateau (in the northeast). It's up to you to consider plateaus as mountain ranges or not! haha
