The species' natural habitat is restricted to the central coast of Peru, between the regions of Ica (Ica region) and Ancash. In the Lima region, a large portion of its coastal habitat has been negatively affected by urban development. Within the city of Lima, sightings were reported in 2004 in the Pantanos de Villa Reserved Zone, where the species may have found a good opportunity to survive. Large populations of this species are found in the ''lomas'' (fog-supported vegetation communities) of Pachacamac and Lachay (Lomas de Lachay).

Development While most shanty towns begin as precarious establishments haphazardly thrown together without basic social and civil services, over time many have undergone a significant amount of development. Often the residents themselves are responsible for the major improvements. http: 2011 08 16 some-young-towns-in-lima-not-so-young-anymore Community organizations sometimes working alongside NGO 's, private companies, and the government, set up connections to the municipal water supply, pave roads, and build local schools. Many of these shanties have become middle class suburbs. One such extreme example is the Los Olivos (Los Olivos District) Neighborhood of Lima, Peru. The Megaplaza shopping mall, one of Lima's largest, along with gated communities, casinos, and even plastic surgery clinics, are just a few of many developments that have transformed what used to be a decrepit shanty. Brazilian favelas have also seen huge improvements in recent years, enough so to attract tourists who flock to catch a glimpse of the colorful lifestyle perched atop Rio de Janeiro's highlands.
