Remarks. Hydrometra caraiba   has been recorded from Mexico to western South America, as well as from several islands of the Caribbean Sea ( Martínez et al. 2019). There are only two previous reports from Panama ( Champion 1898), from Chiriquí and Panama provinces. Here, we record it for the first time from Colón Province. Specimens were collected adjacent to and on the unvegetated rocky shores of a calm, shadowed creek.
