|Distribution||This species is known from south-western and central Guyana, as far north as the Potaro River and as far south as the Yukanopita Falls in the Essequibo River and potentially in northern Brazil as far west as the rio Uraricoera. This species is abundant in the Essequibo basin, including the drainages of its main tributaries the Rupununi, Siparuni and Kuyuwini, as well as the Takutu and Ireng drainages in the Branco River basin. Sampling has not been undertaken in the Rewa River, or its tributaries, however it is likely that further field exploration will reveal the presence of G. dacrya in this basin.
