Remarks: Bussing (2002) describes the distributional range for R. bouchellei as across the Atlantic slope of Central America from the Patuca River in Honduras to the Matina River in Costa Rica. Martin (1972) reported R. bouchellei (field numbers MMH 1969 - 14, MMH 1969 - 19, material deposited at LACM) in the Sico-Tinto o Negro River, which is located west of the Patuca River. We consider the distributional range of R. bouchellei to extend from the Sico-Tinto o Negro River in Honduras to the Matina River in Costa Rica, in the Atlantic slope of Central America.
