Abstract

We report the first record of the Banded-limb Glassfrog, Hyalinobatrachium cappellei (Van Lidth de Jeude, 1904), in Colombia based on 2 specimens, 1 each from the municipalities of Cartagena del Chairá and Solano, department of Caquetá. The present record represents an additional amphibian species for the country, bringing the known total to 821 species and represents a massive range extension of 1,077 km southwest of the nearest known locality for H. cappellei in Venezuela.
