Range Description

This species is known only from the type locality, Río Grande de Jujuy, in Jujuy Province, Argentina. The altitude was not recorded, although it is likely to be above 2,800m asl. The type locality is vague, hampering efforts to clarify the status of this species.

Habitat and Ecology

It lives in mountain streams, but nothing more is known about its habitat and ecology.


It is known only from a single specimen collected in 1925, so its population status is unknown.

Population Trend


Major Threats
