AbstractIn the present paper Leptotyphlops collaris nov. spec. from Surinam and French Guiana is described, whereas L. cupinensis Bailey & Carvalho, L. dimidiatus (Jan) and L septemstriatus (Schneider) are reported from Surinam for the first time. A total of six species (the four mentioned above plus L. macrolepis (Peters) and L. tenella Klauber) is now known to occur in Surinam. Of each species a diagnosis and the ranges of variation of a number of characters are provided. At the end of the paper a key facilitating the identification of the Surinam species is given.
