This species was initially known only from the type locality, Sehuencas, in Carrasco Province, in the department of Cochabamba, Bolivia. Recently it was found on the old road to Chapare, at 2,000-2,200m asl, and near to Karahuasi, in the department of Santa Cruz at 2,150m asl, in the northeastern Andes (Köhler and Lötters 1999, Köhler 2000). It probably occurs more widely.
