This species is known from low to moderate altitudes (320-1,250m asl) in the valley of the Río Pastaza, on the Amazonian slopes of the Ecuadorian Andes. It might occur more widely but this requires confirmation.
Habitat and Ecology
It has been recorded from primary and secondary forest, and it possibly also adapts to some anthropogenic disturbance. It presumably breeds by direct development, like other species of the genus.
The population status of this species is not known, and there is very little recent information.
Agricultural development, for both crops and livestock, as well as logging, are major threats to this species’ habitat.
Its range includes Parque Nacional Sangay.
