Reporting on the first locality in Bocas del Toro province of extreme western Panama, we extend the known geographic distribution of the lizard Leposoma rugiceps (Cope, 1869) about 275 km westwards from the nearest locality in Panamá province. We provide photos of Panamanian specimens, comment on their morphology, and map the distribution of this binational endemism.
