Distribution.

Distributed along the mountain chain from northern Peru to Mexico, this subspecies is perhaps most characteristic of dry woodland. We have seen no specimens from Brazil, the Guianas, Guatemala, El Salvador or Honduras and very few from the Caribbean Islands. Records from Bolivia (Austin and Huáman 1996: 6) were presumably based on misidentifications as no specimens have been traced.
