Range Description

This species is only known from southeastern Brazil, and from Misiones province in Argentina (Davis 1947, Massoia 1980, Vieira 1949). Costa et al. (2003) demonstrated that this species occurs north into Minas Gerais state. Brown (2004) provided records south of Porto Alegre in Rio Grande do Sul state. Gardner (2008) did not recognize the localities in Misiones (Argentina) or Porto Alegre (Brazil), and the range needs clarification.
