Type locality often confused with similarly named place in EC Ecuador, where locality Sarayacu (Sarayaku) lies on R Bobonaza, in W Pastaza, well outside this species’ known range; Peruvian site is the correct one#R. Thought possibly to be sister-species to P. subtilis, with which may occasionally hybridize; a possible hybrid reported from upper R Ucayali in Loreto (N Peru)#R. Monotypic.
Extreme SE Colombia (R Amazon in SE Amazonas) and NE & E Peru S to Pucallpa, on R Ucayali. Old specimens supposedly from E Ecuador considered to have originated from elsewhere.
