Range Map

Mexico: Sinaloa-Durango border, Nuevo León, SE Coahuila, E Guanajuato(?), Jalisco, Michoacán, México, Distrito Federal, Morelos, Hidalgo, Puebla, Tlaxcala, W Central Veracruz, Guerrero, Oaxaca, Chiapas; Guatemala (highlands); W Honduras; N El Salvador. A considerable E-W gap exists at the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, separating the Mesoamerican populations from the Mexican populations by ca. 250 km. The NW (Sinaloa-Durango) and NE (Nuevo León-Coahuila) disjunctions are separated from the main distribution in Central Mexico by similar distances.
