In Brazil it has been found in Minas Gerais (Itatiaia massif and adjacent areas), Rio de Janeiro (recently only from Itatiaia except for a record from Visconde de Mauá in 1988), São Paulo (Serra da Bocaina and Campos do Jordão), Paraná (recently from Fazenda Santa Rita [Anjos et al. 1997]), Santa Catarina (recently in the São Joaquim area) and Rio Grande do Sul (Fazenda das Amoreiras and Aparados da Serra). In Argentina, there is a specimen collected at Tobuna, Misiones, in 1959 and records since 2006 from the Yabotí Biosphere Reserve, Misiones (Maders et al. 2007, Bodrati et al. 2009, 2010).
