This very uniform species probably extends over the entire length of the Pacaraima System. It was described originally from collections from Mount Roraima where it has been since recollected; now it is known from Auyan-tepui, Ptari-tepuf toward the northern end of the System, and the collections cited above represent the southernmost extension of the range.
