This species is known only from the type locality of "Pebas, Ecuador" (Cope 1871), Loreto Department, Peru. The holotype has been lost, and the description cannot be equated with any living species. The type locality is too vague (it might be Pebas Real) so the range of this species has not been mapped in this assessment.
