Remarks. Rhagovelia perija  was described from the Perija Mountain Range, northern Colombia ( Polhemus 1997), and subsequently recorded from Quindío ( Cobos-Vallejo et al. 2007) and Santander ( Aristizábal-García 2017) departments in the same country. We present here the first record of this species from Panama. Rhagovelia elegans  and Tachygerris opacus  have been collected in the same pools remaining from a dry creek as R. perija  .
