From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species can be found from the western slope of the Cordillera Oriental in Colombia (departments of Cundinamarca, Boyaca, and Santander) at elevations of 1,750-2,400m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It occurs in under storey vegetation near watercourses in cloud forest, and also occurs in secondary forest. Reproduction is by direct development.


This is a common species.

Population Trend


Major Threats

Habitat loss and degradation due to agriculture, both crops and cattle ranching, is a major threat. Some other species of Eleutherodactylus that are associated with streams at high elevations have undergone dramatic declines and disappearances, possibly due to chytridiomycosis, so the status of this species should be monitored carefully.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in Santuario de Fauna y Flora Guanentá Alto Río Fonce and the Estacion Demostrativa El Rasgon.
