Camila’s Coral Snake, Micrurus camilae Renjifo & Lundberg, 2003, is known only by 3 collected specimens. In this work, we report for the first time the presence of M. camilae in the middle Magdalena Valley, and we add data about color variation in the species. The new record extends the distributional range of M. camilae by nearly 200 km in a straight line from Vereda El Rayo, Tarazá, Antioquia, which is the nearest point previously reported.
