Distribution: Smith (1958) lists this species for Panama although there no other reports seems to confirm this.

Distribution: listings for Panama probably based on Dunn & Bailey (1939), Auth (1994), and Ibáñez et al. (1995; 2001); the only Panamanian record, a head-only specimen reported by Dunn & Bailey (1939) and Ibáñez et al. (1995), became the holotype of A. imperfectus Myers 2003.
