We report the presence of Synophis lasallei (Nicéforo-María, 1950) in the department of Tolima, Colombia, which represents the first record of this species in the Central Cordillera. In addition, we report a range extension for Synophis niceforomariae Pyron, Arteaga, Echevarría & Torres-Carvajal, 2016 to the departments of Caldas and Tolima; our new records of this species represent the southernmost documented localities in Colombia.
