Taxonomy and etymologyEdit
Habitat and geographic rangeEdit
A. smithi is an arboreal species which lives in the canopies of large trees in the cloud forests of the Sierra Madre de Chiapas. Its elevational range is 1,800–2,800 m (5,900–9,200 ft) above sea level.
A. smithi is only known to exist in a few localities in Chiapas. It is uncommon and may be threatened by deforestation, but it occurs in protected habitat, including the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve.
