We report the first record of A. heterodermus for Ecuador based on four specimens from Chilmá Bajo, province of Carchi, ca. 120 km NE from the nearest record (departamento Putumayo, municipio de Santiago, Colombia) reported in the literature. Two additional records for Ecuador are listed in the Herpnet database, from specimens deposited at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History and collected 18 km SE from Maldonado (ca. 8 km NW from Chilmá Bajo). We also present information about color variation in the recently collected specimens.
