DiagnosisDiagnosis. Dorsal, lateral and ventral body and tail scales lanceolate, keeled and imbricate; prefrontals with medial contact; interparietal, frontonasal, nasals and parietals present; supraoculars 3-3; superciliaries 3-3; second pair of chin shields in medial contact but do not reach oral border; femoral pores 2-2; preanal pores 1-1, absent in females; anterior and posterior limbs moderately developed with four toes on each limb; pre-anal shields 5 to 6; SAB 43-47; dorsals 48-52; ventrals 36-38; gulars 8; maximum snout-vent length 85 mm (Dixon 1973: 19).

Coloration. Dorsal color pattern usually consists of a wide olive brown, mid-dorsal stripe (9-11 scale rows wide), extending from nape to tail; outer edge of dorsal stripe occasionally dark olive, forming an obscure dorsolateral dark line; sides of body somewhat darker than dorsum; venter pale yellow, or tan; head with a lobate from large olive, figure parietals to anterior edge of prefrontals; posterior edge of each dorsal scale edged with dark olive, giving an obscure "banding" effect to each scale row (Dixon 1973: 19). 
CommentDistribution: see map in Ribeiro-Júnior et al. 2016: 153 (Fig. 4). Reports from Colombia (e.g. Vaupés, Ayala 1986) were later described as Bachia pyburni, therefore B. panoplia is not in Colombia.
