Range Description

This species was originally known at the foot of the western Andes in Bolivia. It was recorded in San Carlos and San Ernesto (the type locality), in the department of La Paz. It was rediscovered in Pilon Lajas Biosphere Reserve by Gonzales et al. (1999) after a century, and is now known from an additional two localities. It has been recorded from 800-1,400m asl.
