Geographical distribution. Colombia, Boyacá, Santuario de Fauna y Flora Iguaque   ; Cundinamarca ( Rafael & Rodriguez 2016); Norte de Santander, Parque Nacional Natural Tamá ( Fig. 132 View FIGURE 132 ).

Habitat. Specimens were collected with Malaise traps at ground level at preserve areas that mainly have dry forests of the Andean region mountain range and temperate zones of the Northeast region of Colombia.

Comments. The studied specimens are similar to the holotype illustrated by Ale-Rocha (1996), differing only by being smaller than the holotype by about 0.66 mm. The ejaculatory apodeme, lost in the holotype, is here illustrated based on non-type specimen.
