  • A. b. bogotensis:
  • Andes in western Venezuela (Paramo de Tamá, southern Táchira), Central and Eastern Andes of Colombia, east slope of the Andes in Ecuador, and Andes of northern Peru (south to Ancash, presumably this subspecies)

  • East slope of Andes from northern Peru (central Amazonas) south to Bolivia (La Paz and Cochabamba)
  • A. b. shiptoni:
