The morphometric ratios provided below are mostly original information which complement the information provided by Townes (1970) and Nogueira & Aguiar (2005): CWH 1.77; CWW 1.63; MLW 2.02; MWW 0.72; MSM 0.48; FLW 6.08; SWL 1.87; APH 0.61; AWH 1.80–2.40; HW 1 C 0.80; T 1 LW 3.83; T 1 WW 1.66; T 2 LW 1.48; T 2 WW 2.20; OST 0.77.

Distribution records. The original description recorded the species from Óbidos, State of Pará, northern Brazil (1 º 54 '07''S, 55 º 31 ' 10 ''W); two other geographic records were reported by Nogueira & Aguiar (2005), from Caxiuanã, also in Pará, at about 460 km from the type locality, and from Uruaçu, state of Goiás, central Brazil (14 º17.0'S 48 º 54.8 'W). Three new records are provided here: one from Reserva Florestal Adolfo Ducke, at Manaus, Amazonas (3 º00' 16 ''S 59 º 56 ' 37 ''W), Brazil; one from Kalacoon, Cuyuni-Mazaruni (“Bartica District” on the label), Guyana (6 º 24 '00''N, 58 º 39 '00''W); and one from Iwokrama Forest Reserve, Region 8, Guyana (4 º 40 ' 19 ''N 58 º 41 '04''W). Most distribution records, including possibly also Kalacoon, are from dense, well preserved equatorial forests, while Uruaçu is in an area of open, savannah-like vegetation, the Brazilian Cerrado.
