DistributionRead full entry
Range DescriptionThe species is distributed in the State of Oaxaca in Mexico (Bravo in Hunt et al. 2006), where it occurs in the coastal area and the higher catchment of Rio Tehuantepec (Acosta et al. 2003, Salas-Morales et al. 2003).
Sosa and Gómez-Pompa (1994) report the species for the state of Veracruz, and Fernández-Nava (1998) for the higher catchment of the Río Balsas, specifically in the State of Morelos. These are, however, all cultivated plants and not part of the natural range. Likewise the occurrence in Chiapas (Bravo in Hunt et al. 2006) is also from cultivated sources.
