This species is found in Central and South America. It's widely distributed from central Nicaragua through Panama; west of the Andes to northwestern Ecuador; and east of the Andes from Venezuela and the Guianas to Amazonian Peru, Brazil and Northern Bolivia (Wilson and Reeder 1993; Reid 1997; Eisenberg 1989; Tirira 1999). Found from lowlands to 1,000 m (Emmons and Feer 1997; Reid 1997; Linares 1998). Distribution follows moist lowland forest areas. Note that this species may no longer occur in the southernmost part of the range due to forest loss. It is found from Nicaragua south to Peru and Central Brazil (Simmons 2005).
