Individuals of this species were found sparsely distributed in the photic and aphotic zones at a maximum distance of 60 m from the entrance. The records at Caeté and São José da Safira expand its distribution with about 100 km from the south of Carinhanha, Bahia. This species also occurs in Minas Gerais and São Paulo state in natural cavities ( Chaimowicz 1986, Trajano and Gnaspini 1991, Gnaspini et al. 1994, Hara and Pinto-da-Rocha 2010).
