This species is known from around 1,000m asl in the Serranía de Bella Vista, Caranavi Province, La Paz Department, Bolivia. It is likely to occur patchily in suitable habitat more widely along the eastern slopes of the Andes in Bolivia and Peru.
Habitat and Ecology
It is known from deep in rainforest, where individuals were found on the ground near rocky seeps along a densely forested hillside parallel to a large river. This species is presumed to breed by direct development.
It appears to be rare.
Habitat loss from smallholder agriculture is likely to be its main threat.
This species is not known from any protected areas, but the type locality is near Parque Nacional Madidi and the Reserva de la Biósfera y Terretorio Indígena de Pilón Lajas, in which it might be expected to occur.
