Range DescriptionThis species was originally described by a single specimen collected in 1971, from Sierra de Lema (sector La Escalera, Estado Bolívar), near the eastern borderline between Venezuela and Guyana. Two additional specimens were collected in October and November 2002, from Mount Ayanganna, Potaro-Siparuni Region, which is the highest tepui (table-top mountain) within all Guyana (Lim et al. 2010). This record represents an extension of the range 200 km southeast from the type locality. Four new records were collected very near the type locality in 2007 and 2008 (J. Sánchez pers. comm.).
