In 2010, Aguilar et al. (2010) reported Clelia equatoriana for northern Peru; however, no voucher specimens or any data proving the record were mentioned. Here we confirm the presence of C. equatoriana in Peru based on collected specimens from a recent survey conducted in Piura Department, Peru, and provide novel data from the examination of museum specimens. Our findings extend the known distribution of the species ca. 331 km (straight line distance) SE from previous records in central Ecuador.
