* Otostigmus (Parotostigmus) amazonae Chamberlin, 1914

Material examined. IAVH, 1 specimen, Putumayo, PNN La Paya, A. Morales, 28–30-VII- 2002, 320 m, 0º7'S 74º56'W, Cabaña Viviano Cocha; ICN-M.Ch-0140, 1 specimen, Vaupés, Estación Biológica Mosiro-Itajura (Caparú), J. Pinzón, 2002–2004 GoogleMaps .

Distribution. Otostigmus amazonae is known from high elevations in Peru such as Matucana (2500–2600 m) and San Bartolomé (2000–2200 m) ( Kraus 1957; Bücherl 1974). We found it in Colombia only at low altitudes in the Amazonian Región as recorded here by Chagas-Jr (2012) for northern and western Brazil.

Altitudinal range. 177 to 320 m.
