Drymaeus protractus (Pfeiffer, 1855) was described from “Meobamba, Eastern Peru”. So far no other locality is known for this taxon.
Valentín Mogollón just sent me photographs of living specimens he collected near Tarapoto; this is ca. 100 km SE Moyobamba in the same mountain system. We believe these specimens to be Drymaeus protractus (Pfeiffer, 1855). The subadult specimens here figured show the colour pattern best, the adult specimen has it somewhat faded. The species has beautifully orange-tinted upper tentacles.
