  • Holotype: UTA R-10544, adult ♂, collected by Julio Ornelas-Martínez on 6 July 1976.
  • Type locality: “"La Loma", located some 20–25 km (by road) W-NW of Rizo de Oro (sometimes known as Nueva Tenochtitlán), Chiapas, Mexico. Access is gained into this region by means of a logging road connecting Rizo de Oro with Colonia Rodulfo Figueroa; the latter is a small settlement very near the border with Oaxaca. The type locality lies to the N-NW of Colonia Rodulfo Figueroa on the western slopes of Cerro El Baúl, the highest peak in the region, rising to an elevation of 2,050 m”.
