Range Description

Attila torridus is known mainly from west Ecuador in Esmeraldas, Pichincha, Manab, Los Ros, Guayas, Caar, El Oro and Loja (Wege and Long 1995). In Tumbes, Peru, there are several records from the Northwest Peru Biosphere Reserve. The only record for Colombia is a single individual in Nario, in 1958 (Webster and Rowlett 1998, C.Bushell in litt. 1999). There is a concentration of known localities on the west slope of the Cordillera de Celica, Loja (Wege and Long 1995). It is rare or uncommon in all but a few areas, and numbers have decreased considerably.
