          Abstract

          The Vermiculate Snail-eater, Dipsas vermiculata Peters, 1960, is currently known only from the Amazon region of Ecuador and northern Peru. The present study provides the first record of this species from Colombia, extending its distribution northwards by, approximately, 251 km in a straight line from El Reventador, province of Napo, Ecuador. A detailed description of its fully everted hemipenis is also presented for the first time along with comments on its geographical distribution and identification.
