A new Colombian species of gymnophthalmid lizard is described from Porce River piedmont, in the northern region of the Cordillera Central of Colombia. The new species is allocated in the Anadia bitaeniata group and represents the westernmost member of the group. This species is distinguished primarily by the sub-hexagonal dorsal scales, large quadrangular ventral scales, ten femoral pores per leg not separated by inter-pore scales in both sexes, and by a combination of several characteristic scale counts, hemipenial morphology and color pattern. The threatened status of the new species is discussed.
