Range Description

This species occurs in the eastern slopes of the Eastern Andes of Colombia, Ecuador and Peru, over an elevational range between 1,180 and 2,763 m asl (Tavares et al. 2014). A record from French Guiana is erroneous (Charles-Dominique et al. 2001), and possibly represents Vampyriscus brocki (Arroyo-Cabrales 2008). A record from the National Park Cueva de Los Guacharos, Colombia (Lemke et al. 1982) was attributed to the recently described form Vampyressa sinchi (Tavares et al. 2014). This species is restricted to a relatively small geographic area.
