resp. the beginning of the 20th century at the Río Peripa near the town of
Santo Domingo de los Colorados in Ecuador.
The only known habitat of this species doesn't exist anymore, resp. was destroyed by the building of the Daule-Peripa dam, which is why also many people had to abandone their homes forever without ever getting any redress.
