From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from two localities at altitudes of 2,963-3,330m asl on the western slopes of the Cordillera de Colán in Amazonas Department, northern Peru. The complete range of this recently described species is not known, and it might be endemic to the Cordillera de Colán.

Habitat and Ecology

It can be found in evergreen forest with a high diversity of herbaceous plants, shrubs and lianas, and is not known from modified habitats. The paratype was found in a grassy bog above the tree line. This species presumably breeds by direct development.


A few individuals have been observed in the area, and one adult female and one adult male were used to describe this species.

Population Trend


Major Threats

Selective wood extraction might be taking place at the site from which this species is known (and would therefore constitute a threat to it), but this requires confirmation.

Conservation Actions

This species is present in the Zona Reservada Cordillera de Colán.
