Range Description

This species occurs in central America, but there is still a big question over its exact distribution, given the uncertainty about its taxonomic status. It was first collected from San Juancito in Honduras, and according to Fitch and Seigel (1984), the species occurs from El Salvador to central Nicaragua, with collections from Miramundo, El Salvador and Matagalpa in Nicaragua. Khler (2003) omits the Nicaraguan records and restricts the species to a few localities in Honduras. As such, its extent of occurrence cannot be defined; it may range from around 23,000 km2 based on ten known localities to a much more restricted range within Honduras. It is distributed at high elevations between 1,000 and 2,400 m above sea level.
