The purpose of this application is to conserve, by designation of a neotype for Lachesis (or Bothrops or Porthidium) pulcher (Peters, 1863), the accustomed usage of this name for a terrestrial species of pitviper (family VIPERIDAE) from Colombia and Ecuador, and of Bothriechis oligolepis albocarinatus (Shreve, 1934) for an arboreal pitviper from Ecuador and Peru. The specific name pulcher was originally based on a specimen of albocarinatus but has been universally misapplied since Boulenger (1896).
