Range Description

This species was rediscovered in 1992 (161 years after the collection of the type-specimen) in campina forest on the east bank of the rio Negro, c.45 km north of Manaus, Brazil, extending its range by c.1,000 km east-south-east of the rio Iana type-locality (Whittaker 1995). It has subsequently been found in several other areas further up the rio Negro on two right-bank tributaries, the rio Apua and rio Cuieras, c.80 km north-west and 60 km west of the 1992 records (Whittaker 1995), and appears to be relatively common in white-sand and igap forests on the east bank of the rio Negro (M. Cohn-Haft in litt. 1999).
