World distribution. Ecuador, Peru and Chile.

Chilean distribution. Only recorded for Arica y Parinacota region ( Fig. 180 View FIGURE 180 ).

Altitudinal range. From coastal to inland valley ecosystems (10– 500 m.a.s.l.).

Biology and notes. Drioprosopa vockerothi   is a species widely distributed in other countries and therefore, we propose that this species should be classified as Low Concern (LC). We do not know the flowers that this native species visits, the prey consumed by their larval stages, or other basic aspects of its biology and ecology.

Conservation status. LC; EOO = 1,232 km 2, AOO = 20 km 2 and four localities or subpopulations (see notes for justification).
