Erythrolamprus lamonae — TORRES-CARVAJAL & HINOJOSA 2020 
DistributionColombia (Andean slopes, 1,500 - 2,600 m elevation), south to EC Ecuador  
Reproductionoviparous 
TypesHolotype: MLS (Instituto La Salle, Bogota) 
DiagnosisDIAGNOSIS: “Closely similar to L. bimaculatus bimaculatus in color, but with fewer ventrals (av. 148) and caudals (av. 56).” (Dunn 1944: 486).

DESCRIPTION: “In color this form differs from its ally in that the black nape spots are less evident; the dorsal stripes are more prominent and usually the area between them is dark so that a broad brown dorsal stripe appears on the hind half of the body; the belly spotting is vaguer and more clouded. The ventral range is 139-154 (av. of 11 is 148) except for the Andes specimen which has 177, and which may be compared with the single Aguadita specimen of bimaculatus with 153. Omitting these two specimens the high count for lamonae is 154; the low count for bimaculatus is 165. The caudal range is 50-60, which just meets the caudal range of 60-77 for bimaculatus. No sexual difference is notable. The Andes female has 57 caudals; the Aguadita female has an imperfect tail.” (Dunn 1944: 486) 
CommentSynonymy: previously a subspecies of Erythrolamprus epinephelus (see also commentse there).
