Abstract

The blind snake Anomalepis colombia was described based on a single specimen, and since the collection of this specimen by Kjell von Sneidern in January 1946, there are no records of other specimens in scientific collections. This species is known only from the type locality in La Selva, Pueblo Rico, Caldas, Colombia. In this study A. colombia is redescribed based on external morphology and a detailed osteological description of the skull, prepared by high-resolution x-ray computed tomography.
