From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from the type locality at 2,770m asl on the western slopes of the Cordilera de Huancabamba, Piura Department, Peru. The range for this species is incompletely known; it is suspected to be endemic to Huancabamba but this cannot be confirmed (Wild pers comm.)

Habitat and Ecology

Its habitat is humid montane forest. The single known (male) specimen was calling from a reed leaf 0.5m above the ground at night. This species presumably breeds by direct development.


This species has been named from a single specimen.

Population Trend


Major Threats

There is regional destruction and loss of habitats for livestock rearing and selective wood extraction in the area, and these threats could affect this species.

Conservation Actions

It is not known to occur in any protected areas; further research is needed into this largely unknown species.
