It occurs on the Paria Peninsula, Sucre, and in the Turimiquire Massif (both the Serrana de Turimiquire west of the San Antonio valley, and the Cordillera de Caripe to the east) on the borders of Sucre, Anzoategui and Monagas. In the Serrana de Turimiquire, it has been recorded on cerros Peona, Turimiquire, Macanillal (Colvee 1999) and Negro (Boesman and Curson 1995) and, on the Paria Peninsula on cerros Humo, El Olvido and Azul.
