Note: In doing this work, we found an unusual record of this species from department of Lima (Salinas) in Peru ( Caron et al. 2012: 571). We think that this record does not match with the habitat of the species. The department of Lima belongs to the Desert province as defined by Morrone (2014, 2015) and the species has as inhabits tropical forests ( Caron et al. 2012). Others specimens were collected in Peru (Loreto, Huánuco, Junín, Ucayali and Cuzco) in tropical forests. Madre de Dios is a new department record. The species was previously known from Cayenne in French Guiana.
