We record for the first time the recently described snake Geophis turbidus from the state of Hidalgo, Mexico. The species was recorded in cloud and pine forests, and this report extends the distribution of this species approximately 25 km from its previously known occurrence. In this paper, we also report the first description of a juvenile specimen, along with data on the natural history, morphology, and conservation of this species.
