          Abstract We documented the easternmost records in Colombia of the lizard Gonatodes albogularis, and we hypothesize that these records correspond to introductions, since the specimens have always been collected in anthropogenic habitats. We are not certain that the historical records of the eastern slope of the Cordillera Oriental correspond to accidental introductions (transplanted species) or if they are actually the historical distribution of the species. We consider that G. albogularis is a species that will continue to disperse in the Amazon and Orinoco regions. Population studies should be carried out using molecular tools (haplotypes) in order to elucidate the origin of the cis-Andean populations of this species in the country. We report the second specimen with leucism in Colombia.

          Resumen Documentamos los registros más al oriente del lagarto Gonatodes albogularis en Colombia, sospechamos que estas corresponden a introducciones, ya que los ejemplares se han recolectado siempre en hábitats antrópicos. No tenemos certeza de que los registros históricos de la vertiente oriental de la Cordillera Oriental corresponden a introducciones accidentales (especie trasplantada) o si, por el contrario, son en realidad la distribución histórica de la especie. Consideramos que G. albogularis es una especie que va a seguir dispersándose en las regiones de la Amazonia y la Orinoquia. Se deben realizar estudios poblacionales por medio de herramientas moleculares (haplotipos) para poder dilucidar el origen de las poblaciones cisandinas de esta especie en el país. Reportamos el segundo ejemplar con leucismo en Colombia.
