Probably Frigga spp. found along the Salkantay Trail in the Peruvian Andes. Found to the north of the Salkantay Pass in the Santa Teresa/Salkantay river valley, near the Winaypocco Farm.
We found these in/at the edge of disturbed habitat, the Salkantay Trail and the surrounding jungle. This individual was ~200 m from the farm along the trail. Altitude of the region was 2,000-2,500 meters above sea level.
One of ~6 individuals we spotted in the farm area, all Frigga spp.
