A male Disceratus specimen found in cloud forest of Podocarpus National Park in southernmost Ecuador is apparently conspecific with Disceratus nubiger Scudder 1869, known only from the female holotype, collected one and a half centuries ago on slopes of the volcano Antisana
. The song of this male could be recorded, confirming the identification of field recordings as well as additional acoustic records with an ultrasound detector at the same site.
