The species is described from northern Peru, Dept. Piura, near Huancabamba on the border with Ecuador. Unfortunately the picture given is quite dark, but it shows the characteristic pink lip and the white inside of the aperture well enough. The holotype will be deposited in the Paris museum.
Thanks to Philippe Bouchet who sent me the paper.
