Type 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]
