Habitat and Ecology

It inhabits upper montane forests and clearings and is tolerant of some limited habitat degradation. It is found beneath rocks and logs by day and on low vegetation at night. It is presumed to breed by direct development, but the site of egg deposition is not known.

Population

It is a common species within its small known range.

Population Trend

Decreasing

Major Threats

The major threat is habitat destruction and degradation due to deforestation for agricultural development, logging, and human settlement.

Conservation Actions

Its geographic range overlaps with Parque Nacional Sumaco, and slightly with the Reserva Ecológica Antisana. Improved protection of the montane forest habitat of this species is needed.
