The discusray has been confirmed in Colombia for the Orinoco Basin in the rivers Meta, Inírida, Tomo, Orinoco and low Arauca. This study reports this species, for first time, for the Bita River from a pregnant female captured in March 2009, therefore extending the distribution range of this species in Colombia.
