Erythrina is a genus pantropical with near 112 species, 75 well-know in the Neotróphic, many of them are cultivated in arrangements agroforestrys or used as ornamental. In Colombia they have reported 13 species, two of them introduced. In a recent revision of Erythrina for Colombia, the presence of E. ulei is reported in Colombia of an only collection carried out by R.E. Schultes in 1942 in the Colombo-Ecuadorian frontier, leaving in doubt the presence of this species in Colombian territory. Erythrina ulei is distributed in the whole Amazonia. Here we enlarge their district to the department of the Caquetá, being observed in the riversides of the gulch The Yuca and the river Hacha, in the vicinity of the municipality of Florencia.
