From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known from altitudes of 1,700m asl in the Cordillera Cutucù, from 1,550m asl on the western slopes of the Cordillera del Cóndor, both in Ecuador, and from 1,138m asl on the eastern slopes of the Cordillera del Cóndor, Amazonas Department, Peru. Its range is not very well known.

Habitat and Ecology

It has been found so far only in old growth cloud forest. The only record for this species in Peru was on a leaf two metres above the ground at night. It is presumed to be a direct developing species, although the egg deposition site is not known.


Few individuals of this species have ever been observed, and it is a rare species in Ecuador (where it was last recorded in 1998).

Population Trend


Major Threats

Loss and degradation of habitat due to agricultural development, wood extraction and mining are all threats to this species.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in the Zona Reservada Santiago-Comaina in Peru, and in Parque Nacional Podocarpus in Ecuador.
