This species is currently known only from three sites (separated by 7.5 km) in the northern region of the Sierra de los Cuchumatanes, Guatemala, ranging from 2,652 to 2,799 m asl (Campbell et al. 2010, T. Papenfuss pers. comm. February 2011, S. Rovito pers. comm. March 2011), although the elevational limits are not known with accuracy (S. Rovito pers. comm. March 2011). While its range is almost certainly larger than that covered by the known sites, given reasonably large areas of forest in the vicinity of the type locality, it is unlikely to occur outside a small portion of the northern Sierra de los Cuchumatanes (S. Rovito pers. comm. March 2011). The known sites are in a straight line along a road, and are at similar elevations in similar habitats, presumably connected by continuous forest in the past, although no longer connected (S. Rovito pers. comm. March 2011). Its extent of occurrence, though unquantified, is estimated to be less than 100 km2.
