Range Description

This species is endemic to Venezuela, where it is only known from the Cordillera de los Andes in Trujillo, Mrida, and eastern Tchira states (Woodman and Daz de Pascual 2004). There is a record of Cryptotis from the Coastal Cordillera west of Caracas, Venezuela that was reported under meridensis, but this likely does not represent this species (Ojasti and Mondolfi 1968; Woodman 2002; Hutterer 2005). The species likely occurs throughout the Cordillera, although there are no records from the northern part of the range. It is found from 1,640 to 3,950 m asl (Woodman and Daz de Pascual 2004).
