From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from two localities at 2,000-2,180m asl along the road from Abra Pardo de Miguel to Moyobamba on the east slope of the northern part of the Cordillera Central in northern San Martin Department, Peru (05° 46'S; 77° 42'W). It probably occurs more widely.

Habitat and Ecology

All the known individuals were found on leaves on low vegetation less than 1m above the ground in humid montane forest at night. Reproduction is by direct development.


Very few individuals of this species have been recorded, so its population status is unknown. One adult male and three adult females were used to describe it.

Population Trend


Major Threats

The major threats to this species are habitat destruction and degradation due to increasing agricultural activity, selective wood extraction, and human settlement.
