Oedipina uniformis is a species of salamander in the family Plethodontidae. It is found in mountains and lowlands of central Costa Rica to the Panamian border and likely to occur in Panama.[2]

Oedipina uniformis inhabits humid premontane and lower montane forests where it lives in leaf-litter, under decaying logs, and in moss banks. It can, however, withstand significant habitat modification, and has also been found in pastures, gardens and even cities.[1]

This species has been declining. It is generally not threatened by habitat loss and the reasons of the decline remain a mystery.[1]
