This species is found in the Pacific coastal plains of Mexico from central-southern Sonora to the south, including most of Nayarit (Rosamorada).
Habitat and Ecology
This species inhabits coastal open lowlands in thorn-forest or tropical deciduous forest at 200m asl. It is also found in human disturbed areas and can breed in dams and other artificial water systems.
Several large populations of this species have been recorded along its range.
This species seems to be very resistant to polluted and drainage waters.
This species does not occur within any protected areas. Even though individuals of this species are often found close to human settlements, there is still little information on the population status of the species across its range, and its ecological requirements also need further study.
