Geographic Range [top]

Range Description:This species is only known from the type locality in the municipio of the Andes, on Cordillera Occidental of Antioquia Department in the Colombian Andes. There is no information about the altitudinal range for the species due to confusing data about the distribution of the species (W. Bolívar, A. Ramírez, F. Vargas-Salinas, P. Gutiérrez, M. Bernal, G. González, D. Gómez and M. Rivera pers. comm. August 2016). The previously reported specimens from Caldas are misidentifications of Pristimantis veletis (G. González pers. comm. August 2016).

Cochran (1970) recorded one individual from Valle de Cauca Cisneros below 500 m asl, but Lynch (1997, 1998b) and Ruiz-Carranza, Ardila-Robayo, and Lynch (1996) did not consider this to be a valid record. It was probably by mistake that Acosta-Galvis (2000) included Valle del Cauca in its distribution.
