Range Description

This speciesis confined to a small area of forest (c. 800 km2) on the northern slope of the Central Andes in Colombia (Cuervo et al. 2001), it had been known from just five locations (Renjifo et al. 2002) however it is now known from 16 sites (Cuervo et al. 2008, Cuervo 2014). The area lies between the Porce and Nech river valleys, where it is presently known from four localities in the Municipality of Anor (Cuervo et al. 2001). The species was considered to be locally common at the known localities in Anor, especially between 1,600 and 1,750 m (Cuervo et al. 2001, Renjifo et al. 2002). It is much less common near Amalfi, presumably because the forests in this area have been subjected to exploitation for a longer period of time (Renjifo et al. 2002).
