This species is known from central (a single locality) and (presumably) northern Bolivia, central and southern Amazonian Peru (Departmentos Madre de Dios, Cusco and Puno) and recorded from western Acre State, Brazil. This is a lowland species.
Habitat and Ecology
All specimens were found in primary humid tropical rainforest. At Finca Panguana and Cosñipata Valley (Peru) many individuals were found by day, they were in leaf-litter on the forest floor, and others were calling from a log. It breeds by direct development and is not present in modified habitats.
It is a common species.
There is some localized habitat loss to general human activities such as collection of wood, logging, agriculture (crops, livestock etc.), oil exploration and colonization.
The range of this species overlaps with Parque Nacional Manu and Tambopata-Candamo National Reserve (Madre de Dios) in Peru. In Brazil it is present in Parque Nacional da Serra do Divisor, Acre. It is not known to occur in any Bolivian protected areas.
