Type locality is Lake Izabal, eastern Guatemala and this species has since been recorded from various Atlantic drainages of both Guatemala and neighbouring Belize.
Izabal is the largest lake in Guatemala and is surrounded by lush vegetation. For its size it is relatively shallow due to runoff of sediments from the surrounding mountains.
