Range DescriptionThis species is endemic to Venezuela, where it is only known from the Cordillera de los Andes in Trujillo, MÃ©rida, and eastern TÃ¡chira states (Woodman and DÃaz de Pascual 2004). There is a record of Cryptotis from the Coastal Cordillera west of Caracas, Venezuela that was reported under meridensis, but this likely does not represent this species (Ojasti and Mondolfi 1968; Woodman 2002; Hutterer 2005). The species likely occurs throughout the Cordillera, although there are no records from the northern part of the range. It is found from 1,640 to 3,950 m asl (Woodman and DÃaz de Pascual 2004).
