Resumen

Following examination of recently collected and older specimens of Riama from southern Ecuador, we report morphological variation in R. Vespertina and modify the species diagnosis and description accordingly; furthermore, we describe two new species, comment on additional diversity of the genus in this region and discuss some character-states, specially dorsal scale relief (specifically striated and keeled conditions). We provide an identification key to the species of Riama occurring in southern Ecuador.
