Santiago: Camichin de Jauja (21°27'45"N, 104°48'4"W).


Conservation: The habitat is pristine, the problem being the introduction of exotic species, a healthy colony Astatotilapia calliptera with many territory holding males, which I was able to observe breeding. Other exotics were Oreochromis aureus and Poecilia reticulata.
