Discussion:This is probably a very widespread species iu northern South America, at least in the Amazon Basin. It was described on the basis of collections from Belem, one from the Rio Trombetas in northern Brazil, and one from western Brazil on the Rio Solimoes. This Venezuelan collection represents a very significant northward extension of range and this is the first report of the species in Venezuela.
