From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known from the slopes of Pico Periquito, in Rancho Grande, Aragua State, Venezuela, at altitudes between 1,090 and 1,275m asl. It could occur more widely but this requires confirmation.

Habitat and Ecology

It is a nocturnal inhabitant of cloud forests that reproduces by direct development.

Population

It is a rare species, but there is very little recent information on its population status. The type locality is one of the best-studied localities in the entire Venezuelan coastal mountain range. The absence of recent records might indicate that this species is rare, or is facing declines, or occurs in a microhabitat that has not been adequately sampled.
