Range Description

Doricha eliza occurs in Mexico and has two disjunct populations: one in central Veracruz, and one on the northern fringe of the Yucatán peninsula. A recent review found no morphological differences between the two populations, but there are distinct ecological differences (Ortiz-Pulido et al. 2002). The Veracruz population must be tiny, and declining (Ortiz-Pulido et al. 2002).
