Range Description

This Mexican endemic is known only from the area of Xilita (4.1 miles east of Xilitla) (at close to 1,100 m altitude) in extreme southeastern San Luis Potosi State, and from La Selva in the State of Veracruz (7.2 km east of Huayacoctla) at 2,000 m asl (Lemnos-Espinal et al. 2000). It is also expected to occur in remote mountains to the north of the known range, although the distribution of this species is patchy, and any range extension needs to be carefully confirmed (Lemnos-Espinal et al. 2000).
