Range Description

This species is known only from the type locality, at Cerro Jaua (04° 49' 55''N; 64° 25' 59''W), in Bolívar State, Venezuela, at 1,600m asl. It might also occur at lower altitudes on the slopes of Cerro Jaua, but this requires confirmation. It is probably a slope-loving species, and is likely to occur more widely.

Habitat and Ecology

This nocturnal species is found on branches of vegetation 0.3-1m above the ground, along streams on the slopes of tepui. Males call from small trees in the margins of the river and on rocks and small trees in the middle of the river. The breeding habits are unknown, although reproduction is likely to take place in streams.

Population

It is common.
