I have also added species confirmed from northwestern Brazil (br) near the border with Colombia: Querari in Sao Gabriel da Cachoeira, Brazil, even if they were only reported in Brazil.
Those species followed by ?? are confirmed from only one of the above listed countries and may or may not be in Colombia.
I am probably missing many endemics from Colombia, but will work on including them during the month of June (2010). Species confirmed for Colombia are followed by (C).
