Range Description

This species is known only from the type locality, Toca da Cabocla, Piaui, Brazil. Surveys have been conducted at Lagoa do Jacu and Olho a'Agua da Santa, to the north and south of the type locality, but no further specimens have been found despite significant catch effort. It can therefore be assumed that the species is endemic to the local region of the type locality and the area in which this species is distributed is estimated as less than 5,000 km.
