Its altitudinal range is between 1,100 - 1,375 m asl and based on its area polygon its extent of occurrence (EOO) is estimated to be approximately 546 km2 (C.L. Barrio-Amorós pers. comm. May 2011). Further survey efforts are needed to fully understand this species' distribution, including areas in between known sites, although it is presumed to occur in Jaua and Guanacoco, two neighbouring tepuis (C.L. Barrio-Amorós pers. comm. May 2011).
