Resumen:
We describe the larval morphology of the stream-dwelling tadpole of Hyloscirtus antioquia basedon specimens from the type locality, Antioquia, Colombia. The larvae of H. antioquia (belong tothe suctorial ecomorphological guild) show morphological characters commonly associated withlotic habitats, like a depressed body, low fins, long tail, well-developed tail musculature, and oraldisc with many labial tooth rows. In addition, the larvae of H. antioquia have the anterior andposterior jaw sheath with small serrations and the inner margin of nostrils with one simpletriangular fleshy projection. As in other cases in Hyloscirtus, the tadpole H. antioquia has a largesaccular structure that encloses the vent tube, and partially covers the hindlimbs during theirdevelopment, and also it has the ventrolateral, unpigmented spots in the region proximal to thevent tube. Finally, some aspects concerning the larvae of the tribe Cophomantini are discussed
