Range Description

This species is a restricted-range habitat specialist confined to sand dunes along the So Francisco depressions, in the states of Bahia and Sergipe, Brazil. It is known from two isolated sand patches, although the second record by Delfim et al. (2006) may refer to a yet undescribed species of the same genus. Other unpublished records are available, butindicate isolated populations, always in sandy habitats, which probably comprise disjunct, isolated species (C. Nogueira pers. comm. 2011). The area in which this species is distributed is approximately 1,421 km2, although the two disjunct areas are quite far apart. It is found up to 450 m above sea level.
