Distribution Notes:

The locality "Socorda Mission" on the type series labels is a mispelling. The labels apparently refer to the Mision Socorpa, a catholic mission run by the Order of the Lauritas Sisters within an indian reservation (Resguardo Indigena Sokorpa) for the Yukpa people. It is within the Departamento del Cesar, 27.7km in a straight line from the town of Becerril and only accessible by trail. The decimal coordinates of the mission are 9.7708 -73.0309. The locality is only 4km from the Venezuelan border and quite likely this species is also present in Venezuela.
