Range Description

This species is known from two localities in the Montaas de Cuilco, western Guatemala: Montaas de Pea Blanca, 17.1 km W (by road) from the Colotenango-Cuilco road, past San Francisco El Retiro, at 3,000 m asl, and La Cumbre, 14.1 km (by road) from CA-1 on the El Paraso-Oja Blanca road, at 2,100 m asl (S. Rovito pers. comm. March 2011). These localities are separated by 10 km, and on the basis of forested areas surrounding the known localities, this species' range is estimated to be at least 90 km2 (S. Rovito pers. comm. March 2011). The range could potentially be larger, perhaps also occurring in Mexico close to the border (about 1 km) with Guatemala (where the elevational range of the Montaas de Cuilco on the Mexican side is comparable to that of Guatemala), but so far no records are known from Mexico and additional field work is required to verify whether it occurs elsewhere other than its known localities (S. Rovito pers. comm March 2011).
