Range Description

This species is known from four geographical localities: Rapi, near Chiquintirca, Provincia La Mar, Ayacucho Region, Peru (Lehr 2007); on the road from Punqui to Anco, 3 km before Anco, Ayacucho Region, Peru (Padial et al. 2012); and in two localities near the town of Qollpas (Cerros Animasniocc and Cerro Atampa), Chiquintirca district, province of La Mar, Ayacucho Region, Peru [V. Vargas pers. comm. on iNaturalist observation http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/223798 (Accessed: July 19, 2013)]. It occupies an altitudinal range between 3,411 and 3,850 m asl. It is likely that this species represents a local endemism of the Andean forests above 1,500 m with a limited distribution (Padial et al. 2012, E. Lehr pers. comm. March 2013). Its range, taken as a proxy for extent of occurrence (EOO), is currently estimated to be 39 km2. As two of the known geographical localities are in close proximity to each other and close to a gas pipeline, they are considered a single threat-defined location for the purposes of this assessment, making the number of estimated threat-defined locations three.
