Chile:

• 30 ° 25 ′S – 37 ° 45 ′S [30 ° 40 ′S, 71 ° 41 ′W]; 600–620 m asl: Type Locality: Region IV Coquimbo (Región de Coquimbo), Fray Jorge, ca. 420 km on north of Santiago de Chile, temperate rainforest, surrounded by steppe, mosses and lichens on shrubs. Ramazzotti  (1962 a)

Remarks: Species reported from Chile (locus typicus) Colombia, Italy, Romania and USA ( Ciobanu et al. 2014; Bartels et al. 2014), such a disjunct distribution suggests a species complex or species crypsis (see Michalczyk et al. 2012 a,b for more details).
