Little is known in Colombia about the distribution, ecology, and natural history of the snakes included in the genus Siphlophis. Here, based on analysis of specimens deposited in zoological museums and data from literature, we update the information about the geographic distribution of Siphlophis cervinus and Siphlophis compressus in Colombia.
