Although included for Jalisco by some authors (e.g., Wermuth 1965; Lemos-Espinal & Smith 2007; Cruz-Sáenz, Guerrero, Lazcano & Télles-López 2009), presence in the state is considered undocumented herein, following Cruz-Sáenz, Muñoz-Nolasco, Mata-Silva, Johnson, García-Padilla & Wilson (2017), who did not list the species for Jalisco.
