From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is currently known only from the Pakaraima Mountains in western Guyana, although it is likely to occur in nearby Roraima State, Brazil, and may also occur elsewhere (MacCulloch et al. 2008; R. MacCulloch pers. comm. May 2009). It is found between 678–1,414 m asl (MacCulloch et al. 2008).

Habitat and Ecology

This species inhabits medium-canopy forests. Frogs can be found at night, amidst leaf litter, among rootlets near the base of trees and in ground holes covered by leaves. Males call during afternoons and nights (MacCulloch et al. 2008). This species is presumed to breed by direct development.
