Range Description

This species occurs in the highlands of southwestern and southeastern Guatemala, including the Pacific versant, being known from much of the plateau region of Guatemala, several of the Pacific volcanoes, and the Las Nubes highland block east of Guatemala City. The idnetification of the population recorded from the Sierra de Los Cuchumatanes needs confirmation. Its elevational distribution is from about 1,300-3,000m asl. Recent surveys are finding this salamander at higher elevations than they ever were in the 1970s (Ted Papenfuss pers. comm. 2007).
