Odontophorus hyperythrus Gould, 1858 and Odontophorus strophium (Gould, 1844) are endemic to Colombia. The species O. hyperythrus is distributed on both the slopes of the Western and Central Andes, and in the southern part of the Eastern Andes’ eastern slope, in the Huila, Cauca, and Caquetá departments. O. strophium is distributed on the western slope of the Eastern Andes, in the Santander and Cundinamarca departments. This study reports new records of the two species in the Odontophorus genus in the Boyacá department, which represents an extension if its distribution range.
