Frequency: infrequent

Notes     (Last Modified On 10/18/2012)
general taxon notes:

Ecology. Dry inter-Andean valleys and Chaco forest; on soil, soil covered rocks. Elevation: 230-1880 m. Distribution. Bolivia: Santa Cruz. World range: south-central United States (Texas), Mexico, Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay, and Argentina. Given the present disjunct distribution at the extreme boundaries of the Neotropics, it is likely this species will ultimately be found in intervening areas where suitable dry habitats exist. This species is likely to be found in similar vegetation from the departments of Chuquisaca and Tarija.
