The range of this species includes Reserva de la Biósfera Encrucijada and Reserva de la Biósfera El Triunfo, both in Mexico.
Red List Status
Listed as Vulnerable because its Extent of Occurrence is less than 20,000 km2, its distribution is severely fragmented, and there is continuing decline in the extent and quality of its forest habitat in Mexico and Guatemala.
