This is a recently described species known from altitudes of 185-312m asl in the Amazonian lowlands on the Río Tigres in extreme northern Loreto Department, Peru. It is possible that it is more widespread.
Habitat and Ecology
All the known individuals of this species were found on the leaves of herbaceous plants and bushes 0.1-1.0m above the ground in primary forest at night. This species presumably breeds by direct development.
Three adult males and one adult female were used to describe this species.
It is possibly threatened by localized habitat loss due to general human activities such as agricultural development (for both crops and livestock, for example).
This species is not known from any protected areas.
