From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known from the Guianan Shield in Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana, south of the coastal savannah belt. It has been recorded from 30-1,850m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It occurs in tropical rainforest and montane Guianan forests. Specimens were found in small, rocky permanent streams in primary forest. Lescure and Marty (2001) indicated that this is a nocturnal, arboreal species that lives in forests along rivers. The eggs are laid on the upper and under sides of leaves overhanging streams, into which the larvae fall to complete their development.


Published information indicated that this is an abundant frog in some localities (like Quebrada de Jaspe in Bolívar State, Venezuela) but no exact information was given to ascertain proper figures of population size.

Population Trend


Major Threats

It occurs in an area of minimal human impact, and it is unlikely to be threatened at present.

Conservation Actions

Its range includes several National Parks and other protected areas.
