  Geographic regions: Not found on any curated Geolocale/Taxon lists.
  Biogeographic regions (According to curated Bioregion/Taxon lists):


This species is known from one cloud forest site, where it was common at baits and in Winkler samples.


The basic morphometrics of minor and major match obtusopilosa, rugatula, and trachyderma from Argentina. It is similar to harrisonfordi, rectispina, and rectisentis, but is larger than these. The scapes of the minor extend beyond the vertex margin; the tibia has scruffy suberect setae, not uniformly short and appressed like harrisonfordi; and the promesonotal suture is more impressed. The major has a large blocky head.
