Discussion:The type locality, along the upper Rio Negro of northern Brazil, is in the southern part of the physiographic province in which the above cited collection was made, so it is not an unexpected first report for Venezuela. Since it has also been reported from Tafelberg in the interior of Suriname, it may be a more widely ranging species than earlier suspected.
