"The proposed series is located in the Honduran departments of Francisco Morazán, El Paraíso and Choluteca, most of which have an average altitude of 1000 m a.s.l. and a temperate climate. This is a region through which the mountain ranges of Lepaterique, Misoco and Dipilto cross, and also features coastal areas to the south of the region next to the Pacific Ocean. Therefore, it has a combination of flat and mountainous terrain, with a predominant vegetation of pine trees and, to a lesser extent, oak and cedar trees. Its soils are of volcanic origin rich in minerals. These deposits were located in metamorphic, Paleozoic and Cretaceous sedimentary rocks, which constitute the rugged interior plateau that surrounds Tegucigalpa and Comayagua1."
