Distribution records are the basis for conservation planning and species conservation assessments. New locality and elevation records are reported for 2 dipsadid snakes (Oxyrhopus petolarius and Urotheca fulviceps) and 1 colubrid (Spilotes pullatus) from the Talamanca mountain range of Costa Rica as established by direct sightings. These new records represent important additions to the knowledge of the species and more generally for the Talamanca ecoregion.
