Distribution and habitat. Bachia dorbignyi  occurs in Brazil, Peru, and Bolivia, with a southern Amazonian distribution ( Fig. 4View FIGURE 4). In Brazil, it is known from the states of Rondônia and Mato Grosso. As B. didactyla  , information about its ecology and habitat is scarce. Castrillon & Strussman (1998) found B. dorbignyi  in a semideciduous forest, under a fallen log, and Gainsbury & Colli (2003) in a sandy cerrado enclave.
