DistributionBrazil (Amazonas, Rio Grande do Sul, Mato Grosso, Minas Gerais, Bahia [HR 31: 57], Rio de Janeiro, Piauí), Peru ?,
Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina (Mendoza, La Pampa, San Juan, San Luis, Córdoba, La Rioja, Catamarca, Tucumán, Santiago del Estero, Jujuy, Salta, Formosa, Chaco, Santa Fe, Buenos Aires, Entre Rios, Corrientes, Rio Negro [HR 30: 114], Chubut)

bachmanni: Argentina (Catamarca, Córdoba, La Pampa, La Rioja, Mendoza, Rio Negro, San Juan, San Luis, Santiago
del Estero and Tucumán; Chaqueña, Monte and Espinal
provinces and transitional areas between Espinal and Pampeana (Pampeano Austral district) provinces); Type locality: Córdoba, Argentina.

inaequifasciatus: Argentina (Chaco, Formosa, Jujuy, Salta and Santa Fe (Giraudo & Quaini, 1997). Chaqueña province); Type locality: Estancia Postillon, Puerto Max in Paraguay River, Paraguay.

Type locality: Corrientes, Argentina.

weiseri: Type locality: “Caspinchango, Valle Cachaqué (Prov. Catamarca), Argentinien”  
Reproductionoviparous 
TypesHolotype: MNHN 1705, a 712 mm specimen (A. d'Orbigny).
Holotype: ZMH R04371(formerly no. 3603), male; 3 paratypes ZMH R04372, adult , R04373, subadult, R04374, juvenile (formerly no. 3603); W Conception, Paraguay, leg. H. WEHNER, vend. Dez. 1, 1900: 1 paratype ZMH R04422, female (formerly no. 3620). In the same jar as the holotype were 3 specimens from which no measurements or numers are listed in WERNER (1909: 231) he wrote: “ein Junges ohne dunkle Punkte auf den hellen Zwischenräumen zwischen den Querbinden”. But all specimens of this jar may be examined by WERNER and are paratypes. ZMH R04422 meets the measurements of the female in WERNER’s description (from Hallermann 1998) [inaequifasciata]
Holotype: ZSM 4/1922, male [weiseri] 
Diagnosis 
CommentSynonymy partly after CEI 1993.
