The region of investigation includes the municipios of Allende, Aramberri, Dr. Arroyo, Galeana, Iturbide, Linares, Montemorelos, Rayones, Sabinas Hidalgo, Salinas Victoria, Santa Catarina, Santiago, Villa Aldama, Villa de García and Zaragoza in Nuevo León and Arteaga and Ramos Arizpe in Coahuila, and includes habitats ranging in elevation from 475 to 3700 meters.
