Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAltitude About 7000 ft (2133.6 m).  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Mexico, Baja California, Sierra de la Laguna, freshwater in a mountain stream, about 7000 ft above sea level (2133.6 m; geocoordinates not provided, estimated with gazetteer to be approximatively lat. 23.539º, long. -109.955º). Only known from the type locality.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The specific epithet alticola is presumably composed by the Latin adjective altus, meaning 'high', followed by the suffix of Latin origin -cola, meaning 'inhabitant', and seems to make reference to the type locality of the species, at high altitude.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Freshwater in a mountain stream, about 7000 ft above sea level (2133.6 m).  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Type is missing, description is deficient. Said to be similar to Namanereis cavernicola (Solis-Weiss & Espinasa, 1991) by Glasby (1999:27), in which case it would be senior. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Mexico, Baja California, Sierra de la Laguna, freshwater in a mountain stream, 7000 ft above sea level (2133.6 m). More precise data is not available. The highest point of Sierra de la Laguna is 6857 ft (2090 m; approximative geocoordinates lat. 23.539º, long. -109.955º), for which reason the altitude of the type locality must be considered only as approximative. [details]
