Caldasia. Agosto; 202: 93-102



The presence of the Pelamis platurus (Linnaeus) in the Colombian Pacific coast, is confirmed based on 35 reports (18 published and 17 unpublished), and 36 individual records in national colections. The pelagic sea snake is commonly found in large yellow and black aggregations along slick and drift lines in the areas of Isla Gorgona-Cabo Marzo. Additionally, the brown pelican Pelecanus occidentalis is recorded for the first time as a predator of Pelamis platurus in the American Pacific.
