Resumen

A new species of Stenocercus is described from the eastern Andes of Colombia, Departamento Santander. The new species differs from other Stenocercus by the combination of the following characters: head scales strongly keeled and imbricate, parietals, interparietal, and postparietals distinct, canthals two, angulate temporals not projected, nostrils medial to canthus, tail compressed laterally, vertebral crest in adult males prominently projected, ventrals keeled, posthumeral and postfemoral mite pockets distinct, postxiphisternal inscriptional ribs in contact medially. Specimens of the new species have been misidentified as Stenocercus erythrogaster, which occurs allopatrically in the lowlands of northern Colombia and northwestern Venezuela.
