From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known only from two localities at 550-800 m altitude close to the village of Sapecho on the eastern edge of the Andes in La Paz Departament, Bolivia. It is likely that the species is distributed more widely within the South-West Amazonian ecoregion, and might thus also occur in adjacent Peru.

Habitat and Ecology

This species is known from sub-Andean rainforest. Males were found calling from coffee plants as well as bushes at forest edges and within larger clearings, and the species seems very tolerant to habitat disturbance. The species is presumed to be a larval developer, and to breed in small permanent ponds.

Population

At least in some localities, this species is very common during the rainy season.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

Much forest in the vicinity of the type locality is being cleared for agriculture. However, as noted above, the species appears to be very tolerant to habitat degradation.

Conservation Actions

This species is not known from any protected area, but probably occurs in Parque Nacional Madidi at least.

Taxonomic Notes

This species was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the resurrected genus Dendropsophus (Faivovich, et al., 2005).
