We report additional specimens of Atractus titanicus from three municipalities in the western slope of the Central Cordillera of Colombia. Our reports fill a distribution gap of about 200 km (airline) between Sonsón and Tuluá. This findings support the previous suggestion that A. titanicus is apparently endemic of the western versant of the Central Cordillera and reinforce the idea that boundaries of elevation ranges may constitute an effective barrier to vertical dispersal of some Andean Atractus.
